Genealogy Fair 2020

The Seabrook/Kiawah Island genealogy club, Digging Into Roots Together (D.I.R.T.) is hosting a “Genealogy Fair 2020” on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, from 1:00-3:30 pm at the Live Oak Room, The Lake House, Seabrook Island.

The theme is “WORKING TOGETHER – NEW DISCOVERIES.”  This free event will be the kick-off of our 2020 season, our seventh year!  Special guests from the Charleston Family History Center, the South Carolina Room (Charleston Public Library), Charleston Chapter South Carolina Genealogical Society as well as the Daughters of the Revolution (DAR) and others will be available to answer your questions.

Anyone who would like to start or grow a family tree, understand DNA testing, learn how to do research or just digitize all those photos/documents should attend.  Come and join us, there will be fun games, mapping your ancestors, getting to know others with the same interests, a place to start recording your own family history and genealogy.  You will sit with others doing research in your area of the world and get to discuss breaking through brick walls.  Free refreshments will also be offered.

We are an active club with over 50 members doing genealogical research.  There is a range of expertise from beginners to experts and everything in between working together to enjoy this hobby.

Bring your friends who might be interested as well.  If you are coming from off Seabrook Island you will need a gate pass.  Please send Lynn Baker ( an email with your first and last name, and I will have a pass for you at the Seabrook Island gate.

We look forward to meeting you on Tuesday,  January 14.
