April 2019 Meeting -  Proving Colonial Migration of Mountain Ancestors Using Various Techniques  presented by  Lisa Laws
WEDNESDAY April 3 from 7:00PM to 9:00PM
OWASA Community Center, 400 W. Jones Ferry Road, Carrboro, NC
Putting together your family history requires a combination of techniques, both traditional and modern.  D-OGS member Lisa Laws will follow the paths of her ancestral lines in Pre and Post-Revolutionary America through books, online resources and DNA connected results.  Her small town and rural mountain families unknowingly had 1600s-1700s ancestors all originating in pre-colonial NY, PA, MD, VA.   These lines’ migrations typically ended in NC and Eastern TN, with ancestral families who still live there 250 years later.

All D-OGS meetings are free and open to the public.
