Virginia: The First Colony | 10:30 AM – 12 PM

Learn to research your colonial Virginia ancestors with Clayton Library staff member Melissa Hayes. Beginning with records circa 1776 we will travel backwards through time to examine the documents and records that have survived the burning of courthouses, natural disasters, and general neglect of early colonial scribes.  We will discuss how to overcome major gaps in early records by using unconventional resources.
