The Genealogy Club of Newtown will hold its May meeting at C.H. Booth Library on Wednesday, May 14, beginning at 7 pm.
This month’s speaker will be Priscilla Wismar, a former longtime Newtown resident now living in Southbury. Mrs Wismar is very active in the Southbury genealogy club. Her subject will be “Finding Your Family In Graveyards.”
“As genealogists, we often forget that there can be important information in our various family cemetery plots, or on the records relating to those plots,” said Mrs Wismar. Guests will also learn a step-by-step method to finding out what might be available by just viewing a headstone.
The meeting will be preceded at 6:45 by a club member offering help in the library’s Genealogy Room.
Refreshments will follow the presentation.
