Our next regular meeting is November 5, 2013 ~ 7:00 p.m. Our speaker will be Melinde Lutz Byrne, F.A.S.G. She will present "Under the Surface: Learning Unexpected Things in an Old Burying Ground." The Bradford (Mass.) Old Burying Ground is a classic colonial cemetery. Learn what unexpected things a clean-up crew, ground-penetrating radar, and the study of placement of early burials can teach us about neighbors and kinship.
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Melinde holds degrees and certificates in anthropology, library science, and archival management. She is president of the American Society of Genealogists. She did serials acquisitions for Harvard’s Tozzer Anthropological Library and has been a self-employed genealogist since 1976. She has been a forensic genealogist since 1986.

is a way to find new
ancestors and to share yours. We are looking for this to expand so we
are going to open it
up to the community. If you are interested please add your names today
