Find out information about Confederate ancestors Thursday
Members of the public interested in finding out if any of their ancestors fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War are invited to attend a free presentation by genealogists at 6:30 p.m., Thursday at Bobby’s Bar-B-Q.
Tonya Guy and Pete Peters will speak during a meeting of the Sons of Confederate Veterans’ Brig. Gen. Barnard E. Bee Camp No. 1575.
Guy is the director of the D.A. Tompkins Memorial Library in Edgefield, and she also is Edgefield County’s archivist. Peters is the president of the Aiken-Barnwell Genealogical Society.
Guy and Peters will talk about local documents and other sources that can be used to find information about Confederate soldiers.
If attendees can provide the names of their South Carolina male ancestors who were 15 to 60 years old during the War Between the States, Guy and Peters will help them determine if those men served during the conflict.
Bobby’s Bar-B-Q is at 1897 Jefferson Davis Highway in Warrenville.
