December meeting of Greater Portland Chapter

The Greater Portland Chapter of the Maine Genealogical Society will meet for a social time at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 5th at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 29 Ocean House Road, Cape Elizabeth. Program begins at 1 p.m., business meeting to follow. These meetings are free and open to the public.

This month's speaker, author Matthew Barker, will explore Irish Maine history. He is working in fertile territory as 15% of Maine's 1.3 million residents claim Irish ancestry, according to the 2000 Census. Plan to join us as he has much to share about the Portland Irish.

For more information, contact Linda Aaskov, (207) 490-5709.
