Join the W&M Bray School Lab each month in a new series on Zoom: Bray School Stories: Finding the Bray School Students. Led by Elizabeth Drembus of the W&M Bray School Lab, these sessions are a blend of research and exploration, aiming to shed light on the past and connect it to the present through descendant-centered genealogical research.

In March, Elizabeth will focus on search for Bray School scholars Mary & Elisha -- and elucidate the process of engaging in genealogical work at the same time.

Elizabeth's approach is grounded and engaging. Drawing from her deep expertise in genealogy, she presents findings, shares tales of discovery, and opens discussions about challenges. Participants will find a space to ask questions, share insights, discuss possibilities and delve deeper into genealogical methods.

The sessions are interactive, ensuring everyone has a chance to contribute. And while the focus is on the Bray School students, attendees will walk away with more: a sense of connection to history, a better grasp of genealogical research, and resources to explore their own family histories. 

The event is free and open to all members of the public, but registration is required: https://go.wm.edu/PpyBRX
