The Fearrington Genealogy Group shares interests such as personal and area histories, general research techniques, and advances in technology. We cordially invite newcomers to join us at our monthly meetings, 3-5 p.m., on the second Tuesday, September through May, at the Gathering Place and on occasional research trips. 


Cane Creek Quaker Meeting

Thursday, April 13th, 2023

Thursday, April 13, we are visiting Cane Creek Meeting in Snow Camp. Meeting members will tell us about Quaker records created at this historic site. These records document the Meeting’s impact in Chatham and Orange counties from 1751 through the American Revolution and the struggle against slavery in North Carolina. We will also tour the cemetery and war monument. Please contact Michael Manning if you plan to attend (see FHA directory for contact information).


Monthly workshop hours are on the 3rd Tuesday, 3-5 p.m. in the Small Room of The Gathering Place.  We welcome all who wish to work on a genealogy question.

This club is open to all members of the Fearrington Community who have an interest in family history. We share our own research, and enjoy the research or specialized guidance of guest speakers who are experts in the field.  Annual dues are $15.00.  Contact:  Barbara Ashby for additional information.
