Peggy Natoli Duffy is a wife, mother, grandmother, retired nurse, and long-time patron of the Williamsburg Family History Center. She is the volunteer co-facilitator of our RootsMagic User Group, an avid quilter, and loyal William and Mary soccer fan.

Lise Embley is a editor/writer and content specialist at the National Center for State Courts and director of the Williamsburg Family History Center. In both roles, she leverages technology to solve problems and answer questions.

Nathan B. Oman, professor, William and Mary Law School, is a 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, October 20 - noon
