Free Genealogy Workshop on November 6 hosted by the Fauquier Court House Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and the Culpeper Minute Men of the Sons of the American Revolution
One of the fundamental questions we all ask ourselves at some point or another is where do I come from? If you are lucky enough to have stories about your ancestors, how do you know those stories are real? If you are not that lucky, how can you find out about the people whose lives led to yours? Genealogy is the process of discovering those answers. The Fauquier Court House Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and the Culpeper Minute Men Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution invite you all to come seek out the answers to those questions. We are hosting a free genealogy workshop on November 6 at the Warrenton Presbyterian Church from 9am-3:30pm.
The Fauquier Court House Chapter has been hosting this popular event since 2007. In conjunction with the Culpeper Minute Men, volunteers from both organizations come to help family historians start researching or progress with untangling the threads of their family stories. Regardless of whether you think you have a Revolutionary War Patriot as an ancestor, this workshop will help you learn a little more about your family ties.
When the doors to this event open, attendees can meet the leaders of both the Fauquier Court House Chapter, NSDAR and the Culpeper Minute Men Chapter, SAR while enjoying coffee and breakfast. Attendees will then enjoy eight workshops: Court Records; Internet Resources; African American Research & Resources; What? No Vital Records?; DAR Requirements & Resources; SAR Requirements & Resources; Organizing Your Research, and DNA: Interpreting Your Results. In addition to these fascinating topics, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of a genealogist and enjoy a presentation, “The SAR Patriot Record System,” by Jamie Calender. Lunch, snacks, and door prizes will also be provided.
While the workshop, food, and door prizes are free to the community, space is limited. Please register by 3 November by emailing Annie Campeol at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Daughters of the Fauquier Court House Chapter and the Sons of the Culpeper Minute Men chapter look forward to welcoming you all to the 2021 Genealogy Workshop!
