October is Archives Month and NEARA is excited to celebrate with a half-day workshop! Join us on Saturday, October 6, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at the Powhatan Male and Female Academy (located next to NEARA).
Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced researcher, we’ll have tips to help with your projects. On hand will be Meredith McFadden, NEARA’s archival manager, who will begin with an overview of genealogy tips and available resources. Kermit Channell, the executive director of the Arkansas State Crime Lab, will speak about DNA and how it’s used for genealogy from a scientific perspective. After the workshop guests are welcomed to do research at NEARA.
Light refreshments will be provided. Attendees have an opportunity to win door prizes from Ancestry.com. This event is free but registration is required. To register, please visit our website: archives.arkansas.gov or call 870.878.6521.
