Genealogists to help trace family trees

As part of the town’s 300th anniversary celebrations, the Lexington Daughters of the Revolution is offering several genealogy workshops in February to teach residents how to research their family history. The workshops will kick off Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the large meeting room of the Cary Memorial Library; no preregistration is required. Other workshops will be held on Feb. 9 and 23 at 10 a.m. in the same location, and Feb. 16 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the library. Genealogists with the Daughters of the Revolution will be on hand to offer one-on-one assistance, and participants are asked to bring information including their parents’ and grandparents’ names and, if known, where they were born. The workshops are being offered in coordination with the Lexington 300th Anniversary Celebrations Committee, which is holding a number of events this year to mark the town’s tercentennial anniversary.
