CCGS Librarian Betsy Ferris announces there’s something new for everyone at the Cape Cod Genealogical Library this fall.
The Journey Takers, by Leslie Albrecht Huber, our featured speaker in September, is a brand new book about how to tell a family history engagingly. (See review.) You will find this volume listed with Biographies at 92 ALBRECHT.
Eight new books added to our collection in October were gifts from CCGS Member Mona Lamkin. These include several of interest to those researching Irish immigration, books of interest to those with ancestors from early Philadelphia, or Vermont, or those looking for information on the graveyards of New York City.
Burial Grounds of Vermont, edited by Arthur L. and Frances P. Hyde, was published by the Vermont Old Cemetery Association in 1991. This is a comprehensive list, by county, of all cemeteries in Vermont including number of graves and dates of first and last burials. The book is listed under Cemeteries at 929.5 HYD.
Another book about burials in Vermont includes more extensive information than simply gravestones. Soldiers of the Revolutionary War Buried in Vermont, and anecdotes and incidents relating to some of them, was written by Walter H. Crockett, and delivered before the Vermont Historical Society in the Hall of the House of Representatives on October 27, 1904. There are 4,608 names of Vermont Revolutionary War soldiers. You will find the book among Sources at 929.3 CRO.
