Roberta Bratti Passes Away

We are sad to announce the passing of long-time loyal Society member, Roberta Bratti, who passed away on Sunday, November 6th. Roberta contributed significantly to the Society, having been one of the first members back in 1971 when the Society began.  She is remembered as energetic, vitally interested in genealogy, a fine writer of genealogy, and engaged in many aspects of Society activities.  She co-authored the 3-volume set known as Dennis Vital Records among her other writings, and was also active in the early establishment of a Computers in Genealogy Special Interest Group and on the Publications Committee--insisting on quality standards for anything which the Society produced.

Visitation and memorial will be from 1 to 3pm at Hallett's Funeral Home, at 273 Station Avenue, Yarmouth, near Route 28. The funeral will be from 3 to 4pm there.  We honor her memory and all that she accomplished for the Society.
