FREMONT -- A Genealogy Workshop for Beginners is scheduled for 2-4 p.m. Saturday at the Gov. Charles B. Aycock Birthplace State Historic Site.

Debra Blake and Chris Meekins from the state Office of Archives and History will give an overview of genealogy, how to be productive in genealogy research, and why the state archives is the state's most valuable resource for genealogical research. Handouts will be provided and there will be time for questions at the workshop's conclusion.

Space is limited and registration is required. The fee is $10 for adults and $5 for students. Call 919-242-5581 or email aycock@ncdcr.gov to register. The fee is payable on the day of the workshop.
