History doesn’t just live in textbooks or archives….it lives in you! On Saturday August 24, from 11am-3pm at the Danville Science Center Train Station History United will host an open community event known as “Finding Our Roots” (FOR). Since 2015, this event annually explores family, local history, and the connections we share through both. FOR gives the Dan River Region community the opportunity to discuss their family history with professional and local genealogists and librarians, understand the genealogical resources available to them throughout the region, connect with others in their research, and engage with historians and writers who have used local resources to tell our regional story in meaningful and inspiring ways.
