Have you ever been drawn to a photo or document rich with information for someone else’s family? What about an odd piece of ephemera buried in your family’s memorabilia? Some “orphan records” — those items which have lost their original relationships — have the potential to be returned or introduced to someone who never knew they existed. Pam Hall will share her success with reuniting these “orphans” to their better homes. Plus, if you’re inspired to join this cause, she has a few “orphans” patiently waiting further research. Everyone is also invited to share their own stories of solving “orphan” mysteries.
[This meeting will be held online with Zoom and an invitation will be sent out to the VCGS Weds Workshop Googlegroup email discussion group prior to the meeting. If you are not already on the email discussion group you may contact the webmaster at email@example.com to be added. All our workshops are open to our members and the public.]
