September Meeting to Address Researching Your Civil War Ancestors

September will start our new Cape Cod Genealogical Society monthly programs.  Reminder that most of our regular meetings will now be held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month! 

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Civil War in our nation's history. Many genealogists have been focusing their attention on those ancestors who lived and fought during that time. In his presentation, "Civil War and Genealogy: Research Clues are Everywhere," our September speaker, Mr Fred Wexler, will make suggestions for little known sources of information that you may not have been aware of  for your research.

Fred Wexler, past president of the Cape Cod Civil War Roundtable, has given over 100 presentations on a variety of aspects of the Civil War, including as a guest speaker at the Bistoe Station Battlefield 150th Anniversary Celebration in Virginia. Originally from New York, he retired to the Cape Cod area after spending 30 years in corporate America. Although he was educated as a scientist and attorney, since his retirement, he has pursued an interest in Civil War history through membership in the Cape Cod Civil War Roundtable. In  2004, Mr Wexler was instrumental in the creation of the Dorchester Kneeling Soldier Civil War Memorial.

Our meeting is scheduled at the Brewster Ladies Library on Tuesday, September 15, 2015, at 10 AM.
You are invited to come a little earlier for socializing and coffee and donuts at 9:30.
