Upcoming Meeting News

Our November speaker, Marian Wood, will be presenting "Planning a Future for your Family's Past."  She will speak about passing genealogical research (documents, photos, artifacts, etc.) to the next generations and finding new homes (other family members or even museums and historical societies) for items that do not belong to your immediate family or are no longer wanted by your family.  She will also discuss preparing a genealogical will.

Marian Wood is a professional marketer turned textbook author who has been tracing her family tree for more than 15 years.  She is a long-time member of the Genealogy Club of Newtown and has made presentations about genealogy to audiences in Southbury, New Milford, and Westchester.
