Seabrook Island Genealogy Fair 2019

The Genealogy Fair 2019 hosted by the Seabrook Island Genealogy Club – Digging Into Roots Together was a fabulous success.  There were over 66 people who attended the fair that was held in the Live Oak Hall, The Lake House on Wednesday, January 9.

The event provided an overview of the club and where the resources are in Charleston to help anyone who is interested in family history.  Everyone learned some new ideas and approaches, whether they were a beginner or experienced,

The guest speakers were terrific as they explained what was available to them; South Carolina Room at the Charleston County Public Library, Family History Center, Charleston Chapter South Carolina Genealogy Society, Daughters of the American Revolution and the Jamestowne Society.  During the “walk around” time, everyone had more of their questions answered, including a table on scanning your photos and one on AncestryDNA.

There were even prize winners of mugs, mouse pads or tote bags.  The three who had the highest score on the Genealogy Crossword puzzle were Liz Sanders, Linda Mecchi, and Sheila Quigley. Lynn Baker is the presenter.

The door raffle prize winners were Nick Sanders, Sarah Good, Charlie Black, and Sheila Costello.  Lynn Baker was the presenter.

The Digging into Dirt Together Genealogy Club meets every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 1:30-3:30 PM at the Osprey 2 room, The Lake House.  Come and join us. Contact Lynn Baker for more information: Visit our blog for upcoming events and past presentations:
