Taconnett Falls Genealogy Fair - June 14

Three special presentations will be highlights at the Taconnett Falls Genealogy Society’s 5th Annual Genealogy Fair on June 14. Activities begin at 9 a.m. at the society’s library, 10 Lithgow Street, Winslow, with registration and lunch at the Winslow Congregational Church next door. There is no charge for the fair. Drinks, snacks, and lunch will be available for a small charge.

For beginning genealogists and family historians, Sarah M. Crockett, Lincoln, ME, will present “The Journey into Genealogy: a GPS for Finding Your Ancestors.” This session begins at 10 a.m. in the library’s basement.

At 11:30 a.m. Jerry Gower, Maine First Families 1790’s contributor and Washington County expert, and Janet Weymouth, MGS 1st Vice president and Corresponding Secretary, will discuss ”Brick Walls” in a panel.

During the afternoon Jerry Gower will conduct an “Ancestors’ Road Show,” several 15 minute sessions of one on one help and advice. For this special program you must sign up for a time spot when you register. First come; first served.

The church will be full of display tables from vendors across Maine. The library will be open all day with free access to the myriad records and access to a copy machine for a small donation. Undoubtedly there will be a few Flag Day surprises to attract attention, so what have you got to loose? Come on down to Winslow and enjoy a day looking for ancestors right beside the Kennebec River.
