The next meeting of The Genealogy Club of Newtown will take place on Wednesday, January 8, at C.H. Booth Library. The meeting will start at 7 pm but a help desk will be available one half hour before the meeting for those in need of extra help with a research problem.
This month’s speaker will be Harlan Jessup, who will discuss “Getting There Is Half The Fun: Genealogy Libraries in Connecticut and The Hudson Valley.”
Refreshments will be served, and visitors are welcome.
Mr Jessup is also regularly available on Monday afternoons from 2 to 4 pm, in the library’s Genealogy Room, to assist researchers. The library has a dedicated computer for genealogy research, and many books, magazines and family histories available for study.
Booth Library is at 25 Main Street.
