Hello -

Just a quick note to remind you of our FamilySearch class Saturday May 11 at 2pm in the Virginia Room. We are now a FamilySearch affiliate site - Wendy will show you all the great content available to you at home as well as the additional stuff you can only find at an affiliate site!

We also have a photo scanning project going on - we've partnered with local historian Nelson Harris to create a book on Roanoke in the 1940s (a spiritual successor to Barnes' History of the City of Roanoke) and we're looking for photos for possible inclusion in the book! If you have photos of the Roanoke area in the 40s please consider bringing them in on Saturday at 2 - I'll scan them while you're taking the class!

If you can't make it to the class but have photos for potential donation or scanning please contact us. We'd love to set up a time for you to come in.

I look forward to seeing you in the Virginia Room soon!
