October meeting of Penobscot County Genealogical Society

The next meeting of the Penobscot County Genealogical Society will be on October 21, 2009, at the Bangor Public Library in the Lecture Room.

The society is proud to have Mr. Gerry Palmer as their guest speaker. Gerry, being a lifelong city resident and respected historian of Bangor and Mayor, plans to talk about the famous guess at the Bangor House. In addition, some history of Mount Hope Cemetery along with some of the famous people buried there. Also, the story of Seth Noble, how Bangor received its name and Al Brady. If time permits a question and answer period will follow. Overall, a quick snapshot of some of the famous people who have lived and were buried in Bangor.

As always, everyone is welcome and refreshments will be served. We hope to see a large turnout for this historical perspective.
