Want to learn more about your family’s history?

The Louisa Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints will host a Family History Day for Louisa County on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Church members will join together with the Louisa County Historical Society to assist county residents in researching their family tree. The assistance is free and does not involve proselyting.

Members of the church, trained in conducting research, will have computer work stations set up at the church building at 103 Hollyhurst Lane in the town of Louisa (behind the Sage Building on Rt. 33) to help visitors find their ancestors in the extensive genealogical records of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Elaine Taylor, museum director for the Historical Society’s Sargeant Museum of Louisa County History, will also be present to assist in searching through the museum’s archives of family history records.
