The Genealogy Committee opened the Chesterfield Historical Society research/reference library located at Historic Trinity Church on Saturdays starting at 1pm.  Volunteers will be on hand to assist researchers with their how to questions or make suggestions to help researchers break through their brick walls.   Come out and join in the fun! 


Our library is always getting new items and resources to help you in your family genealogy research.  Our research room is currently in the conference room at the old Trinity Church.  You will also have access to our main library and its abundant resources on Chesterfield County and its people.
