Genealogy Workshop | Legislative Petitions

Genealogy Workshop | Legislative Petitions

Petitions to the General Assembly were the primary catalyst for legislation in the Commonwealth from 1776 until 1865. This workshop will explore how citizens interacted with the General Assembly through 1865. Ginny Dunn (Archives and Library Reference Services manager) and Dawn Tinnell (senior reference archivist) will discuss how you can mine legislative petitions to get a fuller picture of the lives of your ancestors. They will also provide guidance on how to search the Library’s Legislative Petition database and published resources. This workshop complements the Library’s exhibition Your Humble Petitioner. Following the workshop presentation, a tour of the Library and the exhibition will complete the session. Contact Ashley Ramey Craig at ashley.ramey@lva.virginia.gov or 804.692.3001 for more information.

$25 ($20 for Library of Virginia members)
