MARIETTA - Marietta History Center continues its On Doing History program, that introduces our guests to a variety of ways people “do” history. Those who work in the fields of history include cemetery preservationists, genealogists, archaeologists, documentarians, archivists, curators, oral historians, historic preservationists, and just plain old historians, among others! This series will provide an opportunity to learn from and ask questions of the experts in this field. Guests will leave with expert advice on how to apply this field to their own lives.

Our next speaker, Christa McCay, M. H. P. works as the Collections Manager of the Marietta History Center.  She has over the past 18 years of her career, cared for Marietta and Cobb County’s history.
