Upcoming Lectures 

 

  • Final Flight: Arlington at Last, Sunday, November 5th, 2 p.m.

Learn about the history of the Women Air Force Service Pilots (WASP) in World War II and the story of Elaine D. Harmon, a WASP pilot, who worked after her service to help WASP pilots gain veteran status.  Join William Harmon, Elaine Harmon's son, as he recounts the public campaign to win WASP pilots' inurnment rights at Arlington National Cemetery.  

  • After the Courthouse Burns: Rekindling Family History through DNA, 2 p.m.  

The sequel to genealogist Judy G. Russell's (JD, CG, CGL) popular 'ABC's of DNA" program addresses the catastrophic records loss due to fires and disasters at courthouses that are a fact of life for genealogists.  When a disaster takes out birth, marriage, death, court, land, and probate records all in one fell swoop, it may be still possible to light our family's research fires --- to rekindle our interest in our ancestral roots-- using DNA evidence.
