Grandson Sam is doing great as a freshman at the University of Temple,
and Granddaughter Katie is attending community College in Camp Hill, PA. and
is holding down three or four part-time jobs.
We’re been informed that Happy Dollar income is producing quite well, but could use a little more infusion to help cover administrative costs. Besides, it’s a fun and informative part of the meeting.
Jeff Chapman introduced this weeks speaker :
Emily Schroeder, responsible for genealogy at the Maine State Library for 30 years, told us Thursday that the library has one of the best genealogy collections in the Northeast.
The library offers classes on genealogy periodically. She expressed interest in getting young people more involved in the subject. Among the services offered are websites, email access to the reference staff, and obituary services. The Library collection includes family information, histories of places, vital records, town and county reports, cemetery records, French Canadian records, major Maine newspapers and how-to-books.
Reference librarians are on duty to provide direction and advice to researchers. For more information, contact the library website at http://www.maine.gov/msl.
