Judy Lucey to Speak on Integrating Manuscripts in Your Genealogical Research

In anticipation of our April Research Bus Trip to Boston, our speaker this month will talk to us about the value of using manuscripts while researching our family history. Many of us never take advantage of the extensive collections of unpublished materials found in libraries, which can contain valuable information relevant to our ancestors. These materials can include unpublished genealogies, as well as diaries, letters, journals, and records from churches, cemeteries, and other businesses.

Join us on Wednesday, March 20, 2013, at 10AM at the Brewster Ladies' Library, as Judy Lucey will tell us about the materials available at New England Genealogical Society and other repositories. She will give us tips on how to locate resources that will benefit each of us and how to use these materials in our own research.

Judy has worked at NEHGS for the past 10 years and is currently their Assistant Archivist. A Boston native, she received her Bachelor's in Education from Northeastern University and her Master's in Library and Information Science from Simmons College.
