Of special interest to Genealogy enthusiasts

The Augusta County Genealogical Society is sponsoring a trip to the Library of Virginia in downtown Richmond on Thursday August 23rd.  The library was founded in 1823 to preserve and provide access to the state’s collection of print and manuscript holdings. It is the most comprehensive resource in the world for the study of Virginia history, culture, and government. The Library houses a wealth of materials containing genealogical source material. If you have any roots in Virginia you will want to join us on this field trip. 

Arrangements have been made with Cline’s Shuttle Service to transport 14 people to the library. The shuttle will leave the rear parking lot at the Augusta County Library, 1759 Jefferson Hwy., Fishersville at 7:30 am. We will return to Fishersville about 5:30 pm. The cost is $25.00 per person. A check for $25.00 per person must sent to ACGS, P.O. Box436, Fishersville postmarked no later than Wednesday, August, 8th. We will honor the first fourteen paid reservations. So, if you are interested, please make your reservation and pay early to assure your place in the van. Reservations will be accepted at our August 15th meeting if any remain.

Lunch is on your own. The Library has a café in the lobby area that serves a selection of wraps, sandwiches, salads, and fresh soups, as well as a hot lunch special. Or you may choose to visit one of the nearby area restaurants in downtown Richmond. For more information about what to expect at the Library, check out the Visitor Guide at: http://www.lva.virginia.gov/about/visit.asp

Come and see how we can help you with your genealogical research.     You may also call the Augusta County Genealogical Society's Library at 540-885-1991 which is open to the public Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon or by appointment.
