Mount Vernon Genealogical Society Presents
A Day in the Life . . . Experience Your Ancestors’ Stories!

Saturday, September 7

9 am - 3 pm

Hollin Hall Senior Center
1500 Shenandoah Rd., Alexandria, VA

Have you ever wondered what a typical day in the life of an ancestor was like? What did they do for work? What did they do for play? What did they want? What did they believe?

Join us at our 2024 annual conference to explore the genealogical art of time traveling.

One of America's most popular genealogical lecturers, John Colletta, will discuss how historical research can help us understand the day-to-day lives of our ancestors.

Lively discussions will follow. Lunch and prizes included for only $40.
