8:30 AM to 9:00 AM Registration

9:00 AM to 10:00 AM - Digging Into the Past – Finding Hidden Treasures in the Library of Virginia - The Library of Virginia holds so many records and resources, that sometimes it is hard to find what you really want – that key to unlocking your family mystery. Use the same techniques that reference librarians employ - to connect the dots in your family history and identify those missing or “unknown” records in the collection. Learn tips and tricks for getting the most out of your visit, whether long-distance or on site.

10:30 AM to 11:30 AM - My Ancestors Knew Daniel Boone – Did Yours? Researching Along the Wilderness Trail - Daniel Boone's migration along the Wilderness Trail can help us plot our ancestor’s westward migration. Learn what records can be found along the trail. Online and onsite resources will be covered. Learn how to turn that brick wall into an amazing success story.

11:30 AM to 1:00 PM - Break for lunch

1:00 PM to 2:00 PM - From Ulster to North Carolina – The Scots- Irish Settlers - Many Americans can trace their ancestry back to the North Carolina Scots-Irish. We will focus on who these people were, where they came from in the British Isles and where they settled in the New World. Where to find repositories and records of this unique population will also be covered

2:00 PM to 2:30 PM – Drawings for door prizes and raffles

2:30 PM to 3:30 PM - My Old Virginia Home – Records and Resources That Open Closed Doors
Many of Virginia’s records have been lost to fire, war and time, the greatest loss during the Civil War, making it difficult to connect families. Discover how to use alternative records and methods to fill in the gaps created by this loss. Learn why specific records were created and how you can use them in your research to break down your toughest brick walls. Unique tips to find these sources and tricks to understand and use them effectively in your research will also be covered.
