Be sure to reserve Wednesday,January 15, 2014, on your calendar, as Cape Cod Genealogical Society will be welcoming in the new year with, not one, but two speakers. Both are members of our society and both have recently published books to share with us.
Our primary speaker will be Alice Plouchard Stelzer, author of Female Adventurer's Who Helped Colonize Connecticut. Alice will share with us what she has learned about the value of using wills in our research.
Currently the chairperson of the CCGS Communications Committee, Alice has an extensive background as a public relations consultant. Through her Creating Word Power business, she has been writing for over 25 years as a publisher, magazine editor, newspaper editor, columnist, and journalist. She has also been a mentor/coach for other writers and has taught many writing workshops.
Also speaking that day will be Stauffer Miller, one of the Society's out of state members. Stauffer is currently a resident of Virginia and is a military historian. He has published several books related to the Civil War and his most recent, Barnstable County Massachusetts Civil War Soldiers, Enrolled Men and Drafted Men, 1861-1863, was published as a joint effort with CCGS.
For those who have not already purchased copies, both of our speakers will have copies of their most recent publications available for sale that day following the meeting.
We expect to see a great turnout on Wednesday, January 15, at 10 am, at our usual location, Brewster Ladies Library, Route 6A.
