The Middle Peninsula African-American Genealogical and Historical Society (MPAAGHS) will meet at 11 a.m. Saturday, January 14, at the Essex Public Library, 117 North Church Lane, Tappahannock.
All persons who are interested in African-American genealogy and history are invited to attend, said Bessida White.
Those attending the meeting are asked to come prepared to share their personal family history research goals for 2017, said White. These goals might be as basic as getting started on family research for the first time or researching a particular family for the first time. Goals might be to locate records on an ancestor who has been elusive for years or to do DNA testing.
Those attending the meeting also will have an opportunity to share recent genealogical successes and discoveries, as well as roadblocks that they may have encountered in doing family research.
MPAAGHS annual dues of $20 may be paid at the meeting. Visit mpaagenealogicalsociety.org, or call 758-5163.
