Tuesday, February 21
MVGS Event: The Three-Cornered War: The Civil War in the Southwest with Dr. Megan Kate Nelson  (Other Events)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Zoom (Registration Required)
The Three-Cornered War: The Civil War in the Southwest with Dr. Megan Kate Nelson, PhD
 
At Mount Vernon Genealogical Society's February meeting, Historian Megan Kate Nelson will explain how the desert Southwest—New Mexico, Arizona, and southern California—became a site of conflict between U.S. soldiers, Confederate Texans, and Indigenous peoples during the Civil War.
 
Drawing on material from her book, The Three-Cornered War, a 2021 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in History, Nelson will describe four phases in this often-overlooked war theater.
 
Nelson has authored four books and writes about the Civil War, the U.S. West, and American culture for The New York Times, Washington Post, The Atlantic, and Smithsonian Magazine.

Family History Writing SIG
Monday, March 6
Family History Writing SIG  (FxGS SIG Events)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
ZOOM Meeting - Limited to SIG membership (its free)
We invite you to join us for the FxGS Family History Writing SIG online Zoom meeting on Monday night March 6th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm to review this month's manuscript.
 
If you have a manuscript you are writing for your family or publication, members of the Family History Writers’ Special Interest Group would enjoy reading and reviewing your family narratives to help you to make them even better.

We are all at different levels of writing skills and experience, and we enjoy helping each other. Whether questions of grammar, comma usage, spelling variations, or those fiendish footnotes, we welcome the opportunity to discuss and debate the issues.

If you wish to be added to the members' list to receive a copy of the draft manuscript by email and join the online meetings, please send your name and email address to SIG co-leader Sean Furniss at Sean.Furniss@gmail.com.

Join us at the online Zoom meeting and see how historical context can be incorporated into family history narratives. See how two stories can be told at once, placing the protagonist in the center of the action, adding suspense, injecting drama, and using dialogue to move the story forward.

10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Dunn Loring Fire Hall and on Zoom
The Fairfax Genealogical Society is pleased to present:
Judy G. Russell, The Legal Genealogist
 
We are looking forward to hearing Judy Russell present on investigating evidence. As a genealogist with a law degree, Judy G. Russell is a lecturer, educator, and writer who enjoys helping others understand a wide variety of genealogical issues, including the interplay between genealogy and the law. She holds Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer credentials from the Board for Certification of Genealogists, and writes a blog, The Legal Genealogist. Visit her website at www.legalgenealogist.com.
 
The first session, “When Worlds Collide: Resolving Conflicts in Genealogical Research,” will begin at 10:00 a.m. This will be a workshop rather than a lecture, so it will be interactive and last longer than a one-hour lecture. The second session, “No, No, Nanette! What Negative Evidence Is...And Isn’t,” will begin after lunch at 12:30. The workshop and lecture will be recorded and available for 30 days.
 
The price is $35 for members, $40 for nonmembers, and $12 for lunch (provided by Jason’s Deli). Register here or, to register using a printed form, you can find the PDF here [paper form to be provided soon!]. Mail check and completed form to:
