Sept. 21 with cake (of course) and a special focus on family history.
Starting at 1:30 we’re hosting two speakers who will
discuss research strategies and local resources: New London City
Historian Sally Ryan and Katherine Dimancescu, a Hempsted descendant who
is working on a book about her quest.

1-4) and and enjoy cake and lemonade through the afternoon. $5/person or
