As you would expect in any tradition-bound culture, family is a nearly overwhelming aspect of life in the South. They move us, rescue us, condemn us and confound us, but like it or not, they’re all ours.

Now the members of the Tristan de Luna Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution can show you how to get the most out of our ample historical archives. They will hold a workshop on climbing the branches of your family tree, taking advantage of public records and general sleuthing that might escape the amateur genealogist.

The workshop is free.
