Wythe County Conference Cancelled

Surprising no one I am sure, the Family History Institute in Wytheville has been cancelled. This is one of my favorite conferences and I am a bit broken hearted, but we have to be safe and flatten the curve.

Stay safe. Wash your hands. Hunker down and break those brick walls.

VGS Day Cancelled

Understandably The Library of Virginia has cancelled all public programming due to the corona virus situation. VGS is looking into doing a virtual conference. More to come on this. Check the VGS site for more info.

Wash your hands! Stay safe. Sorry I won’t be with you on the 18th.

My niece and I wandered through Civil War Battlefields, grave yards and court houses last year digging up our ancestors’ past adventures.

She wrote me a poem that I think captures the circular motion of what we do as genealogists.
