Our 8th Annual Genealogy Fair takes place at the National Archives on April 18 and 19. We’ve got a great event planned this year! The women of FREED (above) return, there will a chance to consult with an archivist in the “Help, I’m Stuck” booth, and see many guest exhibitors. We’ll also host lectures on 1940 census, Titanic, Civil War records, Japanese internment, and preservation.
