October 22-November 7, 2020 - Virtual Event
Good news! Spirts Alive is pleased to announce that its annual Walk Among the Shadows event will be entirely virtual this year! The event may be accessed using your favorite device from home or from wherever you wish to venture online. The video will be available at Spirits but only from Thursday, October 22nd through, Saturday, November 7th, 2020.

Vices, Voices & the Vote: 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage will bring you seven spirits to share stories of voting practices in the city’s early days, the individuals’ efforts to win women’s access to the ballot box or to argue against that very idea. As always, the event presents real people as portrayed by costumed actors – who have returned to offer perspectives on local history in a very personal, often humorous, manner.

Not only is the event virtual this year, it’s free, due to support from Spirits Alive’s generous sponsors and because this event is funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Donations always are welcome and are what Spirits Alive relies upon for all our conservation and educational activities. Your tax deductible gifts and the support of our generous sponsors enable us to repair and maintain the 200-300 year old cemetery markers and monuments as well as to bring you knowledgeable and entertaining speakers during the Winter Lecture Series.

Eastern Cemetery, 224 Congress Street, is Portland, Maine’s oldest historic landscape, founded in 1668 and on the list of National Historic Landmarks. Spirits Alive is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of this historic burying ground through a range of activities including promotion and education.

Walk Among the Shadows - Vices, Voices & the Vote: 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage.
Online only at October 22-November 7, 2020

November 3 - Dover-Foxcroft, Maine

On Sunday, Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. there will be a Wassabec Genealogy Society meeting at Mayo Regional Hospital in the conference room. The meetings are open to the public and the organization welcomes beginning genealogists to the most experienced.

The program will be “Coming Late to the Genealogy Party” with guest speaker Kathy Normandin. To the older, more experienced genealogist, the wealth of information now available online must seem unbelievable. To someone who is just jumping into genealogy it’s hard to imagine how research was done years ago. Normandin will talk about how to organize records and files in the digital age. Come learn of her system for paperless genealogy.

If you have any questions or need directions please feel free to contact 564-3576 or 876-3073.

This Calendar is sponsored by Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter.
