On Thursday, October 6th the Sussex County Genealogical Society and the Laurel Public Library offer you the chance to meet and greet both "old" and "new" cousins
and share with each other family discoveries and research
The reunion format is basically the same as in past years. It will be held
at the Laurel Library, 101 E. Fourth St, Laurel, DE in the large,
ground-floor community room. The doors will open at 10AM for registration
and we will be off and running for a very exciting day at about 10:30AM.
There will be about 2 hours for networking and sharing, followed by a one
hour lunch break for brown bagging or a visit to a nearby restaurant. You
are also welcome to continue networking during this time. At 1:30PM we have
the great pleasure of having Russ McCabe sharing his in-depth knowledge of
Sussex County with us. Russ, well-known to many of you and an extremely
popular speaker, is the former Director of the Delaware Public Archives and
also a native Sussex Countian. His program "Location! Location! Location!"
addresses the many ways in which geography shaped the history and
development of Delaware and the Delmarva Peninsula. He will concentrate on
Sussex County just for our group. Afterwards there will be plenty of time to
speak with him personally.
You are then invited to either continue networking with each other or take
advantage of the large collection of genealogical and historical material
housed on the second floor of the library. Norma Jean Fowler, the library's
genealogy expert, will be there to assist you until 5PM. But all good things
must come to an end (at least for the day), although you are welcomed to
continue your researching until 8PM when the library closes.
