Dear Viewpoint:

Would you like to know more about your family? Do you know who your grandfathers and grandmothers were? Where did they live? What did they do for a living? Who were your great grandparents? What country did your ancestors live in? The Research Room at the South Boston-Halifax County Museum may be able to help you find some answers to these questions. The museum is located on Wilborn Avenue across the street from the Powell Funeral Home. The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday 10:00 to 4:00. There is no admission charge. It is best to call ahead to see if there is a volunteer to help you at 572-9200.

James N. Sheppard, Museum Volunteer
