February 5, 2011 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
Interested in researching your family history? Plan to attend the 10th annual Genealogy Workshop at the Old Courthouse Museum on Saturday, February 5, 2011. Registration & introductions at 8:30 a.m., programs end at 3:30 p.m. Elizabeth C. Wells, Special Collections Librarian at Samford Unitersity and Dr. Gregory A. Waselkov, Director of the Center for Archaeological Studies at the University of South Alabama will address “Researching Early Settlers Along the Old Federal Road” at the museum. A box lunch will be served at the Old Masonic Lodge in Perdue Hill, where Craig Remington, Director of the Cartographic Research Laboratory, Department of Geography at the University of Alabama, and Board Member of the Alabama Cemetery Preservation Alliance, will present a collection of very early maps of the area. Registration fee of $30.00 includes box lunch. Contact Monroe County Heritage Museum at email@example.com or 251-575-7433 for advance registration and further information.”
Folks need to pre-register so that we will have a reasonably accurate count for handout materials and food. This will be a really good program combining history, archaeology, genealogical research and cartography. Wear or bring outdoor clothes for some optional fieldwork in the Claiborne area in the afternoon. We look forward to seeing you.
