A New Local History Website

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

We are pleased to announce the creation of a new website and blog by the Central Virginia History Researchers (CVHR) based in Albemarle County, Virginia. For now we will focus on posting guidelines or helpful tips for conducting research into African American family history (check out our website for more details). Over the next two years we will seek funding to create an on-line, open-source database of African American families.

We meet as a group once a month at 4pm on the first Thursday of most months at the Jefferson Library in Kenwood (part of the Monticello complex in Charlottesville). Directions are available to Kenwood and Monticello. We will post future meeting topics here on the blog.
