Date Change for September Monthly Meeting

Due to a scheduling conflict with our scheduled speaker, it has been necessary to change the date of our September meeting. Rather than the 3rd week of the month, we will be meeting on the 4th Wednesday, September 25, 2013, at our usual time -- 10am -- and our usual location, the Brewster Ladies Library. This change is only for this month and in October, we will return to our regular schedule. 


Our speaker this month will be Judy Lucey, assistant archivist from New England Historic Genealogical Society, where she has been employed for over 10 years. Her areas of expertise include Irish genealogy, Newfoundland, 19th and 20th century genealogy and Italian research. She has represented NEHGS at a number of meetings and conferences throughout the U.S. and has been a consulting genealogist on many of their research trips, including Salt Lake City, Ireland, and Canadian destinations.

Judy was very well received by our society last spring, when she spoke to us about the value of using archival materials in our research. In response to questions she was asked following her presentation at that time, she will be discussing  how to prepare your genealogical records for future generations.
She is looking forward to seeing many of our members once again.

We hope to see you  on Wednesday, September 25, at the first of our monthly meetings for the 2013/2014 year.
