Virginia Roots and Kentucky Cousins

2015-06_02Once lying within the boundaries of Virginia, the state of Kentucky was first populated by many Virginians moving west, motivated by the ever-enticing promise of new land. Kentucky county records may be the ones to hold the genealogical evidence you need to move your family research forward. GRIVA’s Members Meeting on May 24, 2016 will feature Barbara Teague, who will present “Kentucky Genealogical Research at the Archives and Beyond.”

Barbara serves as Director of the Government Records Services Division at the Library of Virginia. Before joining our state library, she worked extensively with Kentucky records at the Kentucky Department for Library and Archives. During her Kentucky career, Ms. Teague was responsible for the oversight of archives for over 2,000 government agencies in Bluegrass State.

Join us at 7:45 p.m. in the Beck Room 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.

Program Handouts:
