Do you have “tar heel” ancestors in your family tree? GRIVA’s May meeting will help you bring their lives into focus. GRIVA Board Member Ann Price will present a program on how to find and use North Carolina records. Her talk will include the history of the formation of the Carolina Colony, population movement sources that are critical to tracking your ancestors, and other helpful records that are available for consultation.

Mrs. Price is a retired teacher having taught 5 years in Chesterfield County at Falling Creek Elementary and Providence Middle School and nineteen at the Adult Career Development Center in Jackson Ward for Richmond City Schools. She is an active member of Huguenot Road Baptist Church and serves on the Guild Board of Covenant Woods Retirement Community and the Richmond Home Economics Association. She is a member of the Commonwealth Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, Jamestowne Society, and past president of Order of First Families of North Carolina.

Join us for “Researching Your Family in North Carolina” on May 28, 2013 at 7:45 p.m. at the Bon Air Presbyterian Church, 9201 West Huguenot Road, Richmond, Virginia. There will be a short GRIVA meeting before the program with refreshments and social time afterwards. Our meetings are free to the public and visitors are welcome.
