October Meeting

A small group, last night but we had some interesting discussions. The sharing of knowledge is great and I know several people filled in some blanks.

Elaine had interesting show and ask. One was an evening bag that looks like it was knitted metal and the other was a shawl, also with metal through it. She wanted to know where she could get information as to the period they were made in. The Powerhouse Museum and a local librarian where suggested.

Another of our members has found details of an ancestor, who served in the Union Army, in the American Civil War, fascinating.

We also had Rowan show his newly published family history book. So much research has gone into the book about a fascinating branch of his tree. Rowan self published through lulu.com.

Next month we have Natalie giving a talk on her book.

Bye for now,
