September 2011 Mentoring Sessions

September is our first month for Mentoring in our new year.  We have three programs for you to enjoy:

Thursday September 8, 2011
Topic:     Gravestone Cleaning How To's & Tour
Time:      10 am
Place:      Bridge Road Cemetery, Bridge Road, Eastham, MA 02642
Mentor:   Robert Carlson
Learn about the do's and dont's for cleaning gravestones while standing in one of Eastham's Ancient cemeteries. Check out Bob's web site to learn about some of the headstones that can be found here. Please contact Bob at for a reservation.

Friday September 16, 2011
Unfortunately, due to the untimely death of Dan McConnell, this Mentoring session is cancelled

Thursday September 29, 2011
Topic:        Genealogy Trips Abroad
Time:         2:00 to 4:00 pm
Place:        Dennis Public Library, Dennisport
Mentor:     David Martin
Many genealogists in the USA eventually reach the point where they must travel abroad in order to continue any further with their research. This mentoring session will describe a group's recent visit to England for that purpose. We will include: how to plan, what to take, the most useful facilities and places to visit, and how to record what you find, related to genealogical research in another country. Be sure to send David an e-mail at for a reservation to this informative session.

We need your help! If we are to continue this program, we need to have more members willing to host a Mentoring Session. If you are unsure, why not contact a member who has actually been a Mentor? Perhaps they can help you realize just how easy it really is. Try David Martin, Dan McConnell, Nancy Daniels, Jim Gould, Bill Harding, Betsy Ferris etc. Contact me at any time at with the topic of your choice.
