Booth Setup

The Genealogy Festival will open at 9:00AM on Saturday, April 5th. The booths can be dismantled at 4:00PM on Saturday so you can enjoy all the other events that will be taking place that evening. If you have a good extension cord, you might want to bring it.

Research in the Granville Museum

A new database is available on-line to assist researchers in the Granville Museum. Over 120 notebooks of family material have been donated to the Museum over the years but searching all those notebooks could be a formidable task. An index is now available at to search for surnames across all the notebooks. Thanks to Ellen Deavers, Chris Neely, and Robbie Adcock for all the research and data entry.
