Summer Genealogy Discussion Sessions
This summer, we are planning to offer a round table discussion sessions on genealogy topics once a month, starting in May and ending in August.
These sessions will meet on the second Monday of each month at the Mid-County Regional Library from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Plan to attend and keep your genealogy projects active throughout the summer.
No reservations are needed, just show up and bring your questions or problems to the group.
Who knows, someone may be able to offer some assistance or a suggestion that makes a big difference.
We will have available as many power strips as possible so you can plug in your laptops and follow along as we solve the toughest genealogy problems. We will need volunteer assistants for each session.
Please contact Jim Maloney at if you can volunteer as an assistant for one of the dates below.

Tips & Tricks
When the head of the household is no longer listed, don’t assume he/she is dead. It’s possible that the former head of household is now living with one of the children.

There are three types of wills: Attested, Holographic and Nuncupative. The attested will is the most common and is prepared for the testator. A holographic will is written by the testator himself. A nuncupative will is the deathbed wishes of the testator, recorded by a witness present at the bedside. All wills must be witnessed.

An "executor" is named by the testator and is required by the court to post a bond. An "administrator" is appointed to handle the affairs of one who dies intestate (without a will).
