Upcoming March Events

Well March is one of those months that is sneaking up on me and will be even busier than February.  How in the world did that happen!  Of course, it would help if it would just be spring already and my family would stay healthy.  No rest for mom you know.

However, I wanted to write a quick reminder post about a few things in my local area that people may be interested in.  Ready?!

March 12th:  At the monthly FRGS meeting (7pm Salem Church Library, Fredericksburg, VA) I will be presenting a lecture titled “Keeping Memories Forever: Sharing Your Family History in the Digital Age.”  In this ever growing digital age how are you capturing family memories?  Learn new ways to capture moments from family outings, record stories from relatives, and then save them for future generations.  This presentation will focus primarily on mobile apps, websites, and digital devices that can help you do this successfully. 

March 22nd:  “Your Family Stories” is a free event presented by FRGS and the CRRL 9am-1pm at the Main Library in Fredericksburg, VA.  Learn how to interview your family members and creatively share the precious stories that come to light.  Check out the FRGS website for more details.

March 28-29th:  Fairfax Genealogical Society (FxGS) Spring Conference.  Check out their website for more details and to register for the event.

Lots of information huh?  I will not be at the FxGS conference this year.  It just happens to be the same weekend as the Virginia State DAR Conference which is where I will be.  Oh, and look for pictures of that in April.  You see, I am a page.  Pages, for those who don’t know, are essentially assistants and helpers for the event.  I am looking forward to it, and am praying that I don’t mess up.  You see I have to wear all white, and for those of you who know how spill prone I am should get a good chuckle out of that bit of information. 

After that is NGS in May.  I will be there and hope that if you see me you will come say hi!  Putting faces with names is always a great experience.  


  1. Yes, I am chuckling at the all-white required combined with you. :)

    As for the rest, I wish I had more free time to make some of these events. (Well, except for the one on the 22nd -- do not worry, I will be there!)

    1. Yeah, I went shopping for it today. Scary, very scary. Also very hard!

      You'd better be there!!

  2. I had to wear all-white dresses when I did exhibition dancing with the RSCDS. Those were hard to find -- ended up making a few of them. How else to get a dress that was all white AND comfortable to dance in?

    I still have my fancy white dress (trimmed with battenburg lace). I just have no cause to wear it anywhere though .....
