Your ancestors were more than just a name, date of birth, and date of death. Join us to learn how to use historical research techniques within Alexandria Library's Local History/Special Collections' archive to give life to your family’s story. This workshop will inspire you to search for clues in unconventional places whether you’re a beginner or a genealogical Sherlock Holmes.
We will discuss:
· Finding aids & primary source materials
· Archive etiquette
· Using the collections in Alexandria Library's LH/SC archive
· How to get the most from the Library of Virginia (for VA residents)
