Nathan B. Oman, professor, William and Mary Law School, is a husband, father, gardener, banjo player, runner, and fly fisherman.


Third Thursday Brown Bag Lectures

Held each month on the third Thursday at noon, these presentations are designed to be short (30-45 minutes) and narrowly-focused. They are less formal than a class, and meant to be interactive. Feel free to bring your lunch, and eat while you're learning!

Thursday, November 17 - noon

FamilySearch Memories - New features, new ways to capture and share your family's story

RootsMagic User Group

This group meets every other month on the third Thursday at 10:00 AM.
