MORROW — The Georgia Archives wants to help you discover your roots.

On June 12, the Archives is hosting its first virtual Lunch and Learn Program.

Reference Archivist Tamika Strong will present Discovering Your Georgia Roots Using the Virtual Vault from noon to 1 p.m. The presentation will discuss and explore resources that can be used to trace family roots in Georgia and share the methodology and research tips to local records in the Virtual Vault.

The Virtual Vault is a portal to some of the state’s most important historical documents from 1733 to present, Georgia Archives officials said. The vault also provides virtual access to historic Georgia manuscripts, photographs, maps and government records.

The link and directions for this Microsoft Teams’ virtual Lunch and Learn live event will be posted on the Georgia Archives’ Facebook page on Friday morning, June 12. Microsoft Teams currently supports these browsers: Internet Explorer II, Microsoft Edge, RS2 or later, the latest version of Chrome and the latest version of Firefox.
