Hatteras Island Genealogy Society and the Lost Colony Genealogy and DNA Research Group, are coming together to bring you some good eats and we will have with us several guests, all specialists in aspects of Lost Colony Research.
Roberta Estes, Director of the Lost Colony Research Group will give a presentation about the ongoing research into the fate of the Lost Colony, the Lost Colony DNA project, and the Hatteras Island Family …project, co-administered by Dawn Taylor. Dawn and Roberta will have their Hatteras Island genealogy data base along for easy access this evening, so be sure to see if your ancestor is listed. We’ll be talking about what we’ve found in the Hatteras families, genetically, too – so if it’s results you’re looking for – you won’t want to miss this.
Anne Poole, Research Director of the Lost Colony Research Group will be with us as well.
Andy Powell, recently retired Mayor of Bideford England, and expert on the English aspect of Lost Colony research will bring his recently released book, Grenville and The Lost Colony of Roanoke, and will be sharing with us the role of Sir Richard Grenville in the Lost Colony adventure. Andy has spent years translating original English documents and will be sharing his knowledge with us.
