Includes but not be limited to opportunities to “play” and opportunities to contribute in Chatham County.
In conjunction with the Chatham 250 celebration, Chatham Community Library will host a virtual lecture focusing on the genealogical and heritage resources available through the County’s public libraries and other related sources. This event is part of the Chatham 250 lecture series chronicling the histories of communities of color in Chatham County, and will feature experts in history and genealogy who will touch on the various groups that settled in Chatham County and the places from which they came.
Participants will learn about specific genealogical resources—what they are, where they are stored, how to access them, and who can help with their research. The presentation will also contain helpful tips to aid those who are building family histories or researching and tracking records.
This event is free and open to the public and made possible through the support of volunteer experts and organizations.
