The Caroline County Heritage Book Committee will meet 6 p.m. March 20 at the Ladysmith Library.
The date of the meeting, which is open to the public, also is the deadline for submitting family stories, pictures, and book orders.
Dozens of family stories and pictures have already been received, and more are still being written.
Current or former Caroline County households are eligible to submit 500 words of family history and one picture for free.
The Caroline County Heritage Book is expected to be published late this year or in early 2013. Samples of other similar books are available in branches of the Caroline County Library.
Story and photograph submissions may be sent to Caroline County Heritage Book, P.O. Box 71, Wallace, Va., 28466.
