SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Have you always wanted to research your family tree, but don’t know where to start? Hugh Putnam of the Springfield Art and Historical Society will present Introduction to Genealogy at the Springfield Town Library on Thursday, April 20 at 6:30 p.m.
Hugh will cover the various aspects of getting started in genealogy. The talk will give a general overview with particular information about doing research in Springfield and Vermont. Please join us!
This event is part of the popular statewide Vermont Humanities Council program, Vermont Reads, at the library this spring.
The 2017 book selection is Jacqueline Woodson’s “Brown Girl Dreaming.” This beautiful memoir of the author’s childhood, written in verse, tells the story of a young person finding her voice and examines the strength of family bonds. The library has been awarded multiple copies of “Brown Girl Dreaming,” for patrons to borrow and share in our community this spring.
The Springfield Food Co-op has graciously agreed to make copies of the book available. Stop by the Library or the Springfield Food Co-op and borrow a copy today! Look for more Vermont Reads programs at the Library this spring for all ages!
