About the Event
Chris Barbuschak is an Archivist and Librarian at the City of Fairfax Regional Library, where he manages and preserves the Virginia Room’s 300+ manuscript collections, 7,000 rare books, and over one million historical photographs of the Northern Virginia region. Chris will give a presentation to SAWS members about the Scottish and Scots-Irish genealogy resources available through the Fairfax County Public Libraries. We will also enjoy a tour of the Virginia Room.
Dames & Drams is our recurring networking event scheduled for the second Saturday of each month from 2:00-4:00 PM. The location for our gatherings varies. Some gatherings are, once again, in person, while we continue to hold others virtually in order to stay in touch with the members that are located throughout the United States or traveling for work or pleasure. Dames & Drams is open to anyone interested in learning more about their Scottish heritage or SAWS. Maybe considering membership? This is a great way to meet existing members, ask questions concerning our activities, and to share your interests.
