Sussex County Cousins
I went to a session of Sussex County Cousins at the Laurel Library yesterday. These are usually good events and this was also good. The idea is you bring your genealogical information and ask other people attending if they have any of the people you are looking for and you trade information. About 20 people were there. The drawback, I have, is my hearing is growing worst each year and with any kind of background noise it makes it impossible for me to hear. With 20 people talking it did create problems for me. Some information was added to the data on family members so I got something out of it. Plan to attend it when it is given again next year.
Adult Services Librarian, Gregg McCullough, gave an overview of the library's Delaware Collection. Members of the Major Nathaniel Mitchell Chapter, NSDAR http://delawaredar.org/chapters.htm , gave a brief presentation on DAR, and Gregg gave a brief presentation on C.A.R. http://www.nscar.org/ and SAR http://www.sar.org/
The Major Nathaniel Mitchell Chapter of the Delaware DAR provided snacks and information and kept things moving.
