Vital records—we have all created them, searched for them, and we all need them. As family historians we are seeking information about our ancestors. We look for that missing record that places our ancestors in a certain place at a certain time. At the heart of our research is the search for the dates pertaining to key events that took place in their lives. These events include birth, marriage, divorce, and death. Our search is for the official record that is most likely to prove kinship. Come join us as we look at Vital Records to learn how they can be hero and answer our questions or become a villain and generate more questions.

Dianne’s specialty is connecting people with their ancestral past by putting skin on the bones of these ancestors. They in turn become alive and real to their descendants through family genealogies, family histories and booklets, and memorial programs. Dianne is a member of numerous genealogical, lineage and historical societies, including the Association of Professional Genealogists and the National Genealogical Society. She specializes in research on the Civil War, colonial times, land records, court records, lineage societies, and the Mayflower.

A light lunch will be served after the presentation. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Lumpkin County Library.

Registration is required to attend, with limited space. The deadline for registration is Friday, August 24. Call the Lumpkin County Library at 706-864-3668 to reserve your spot.Friends of Lumpkin County Library logo
