June 2017 Meeting

The South Central VA Genealogical Society will hold its next meeting on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at 1:30 pm in the Family History and Research room of the Charlotte County Library located at 112 LeGrande Ave. Charlotte Court House.
Guest speaker for this month's program will be Connie Routon Purvis. The topic of her presentation is entitled "Grandma's Garden: A gift to the Generations…..A study of flowers and shrubs passed from Grandmother to Daughter to Grandchild. This interesting topic is brought on by her life-long interest in family and local history in addition to her obsession with plants and wildlife.
Ms. Purvis is a retired National Registered Paramedic, Regional EMS Educational Coordinator, and Department of Health Adjunct Faculty for Central VA Community College who has traced her own lineages in the US to the 1600's. She assisted author and historian Vertily Freeman in research for her book "Around the Bend," a history of eastern Bedford County. She also assisted the Big Island Chapter of the Virginia Garden Club with many plant walks and identification studies.
Our programs are free and open to everyone. Should your interests be in genealogy or gardening, you will probably enjoy this program.
