Finding evidence of our ancestor’s lives can be a challenge, especially when for unknown reasons they are unaccounted for in the usual documents. Censuses are a critical source for confirming residence, family structure, and lifestyle. But what should we do when our people are not included on these lists?

GRIVA welcomes its members back from winter break with our first Members Meeting of 2016. Please join us to enjoy a presentation by Betty German whose topic will be Looking Beyond the Census: Places Your Ancestors May Be Hiding. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, March 29th. [NOTE: This is a date change!]

Join us at 1:45 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.
