Family files at the CCGS Library : Featured library resource for February 2014

This month we are featuring a category of materials at the Library rather than an individual publication.  This collection is "Families", located in a drawer of the filing cabinet within the Genealogy Room.

A new "page" has been added to our website to let everyone know about these materials.  See the list of family files here, or click on the right hand side of the CCGS website on "Family files at the CCGS Library", just above the library catalog.  Perhaps some of your family names are represented.

What's in the Family folders?  Typically they are notes, genealogy charts, and/or newspaper articles.  Generally they are unpublished or "scrapbook" type materials, not in a format that works well on library shelves, but worth keeping in our collection.

The impetus for giving more visibility to this group of materials is the addition of a paper donated by  CCGS President David Martin, about the genealogy of the Pease family.  It lists the descendents of Thomas Pease and Betsey Wright Pease of Massachusetts and Maine.

If some of your ancestral names are on this list, please come explore the relevant folder(s) in the Genealogy Room with the assistance of your friendly library volunteer.
