June 18 and 19 - Tunbridge, VT
The 2016 Vermont History Expo features the Vermont Historical Society’s Leahy Library and other genealogical organizations can help answer questions about genealogy and archival research in Floral Hall on the Tunbridge Fairgrounds June 18 and 19.
Vermont Historical Society’s Expo coordinator, Amanda Gustin, explains, “A popular feature of the Vermont History Expo is our genealogy specialists—you can work with representatives from the state’s leading genealogy organizations and archivists from Vermont’s major repositories.”
History Expo visitors will have the opportunity to search for their family histories on the Internet with expert advice.
In addition, many of the participating organizations—including the Vermont Historical Society bookstore—will offer a variety of genealogical publications for sale.
Visitors can also delve into additional aspects of archival research at other booths in Floral Hall. Representatives from the Vermont Digital Newspaper Project will share their exhibit “Cycling through the News,” sharing bicycle history as seen through historic Vermont newspapers. Members of the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration will provide helpful handouts on preserving personal digital records and disaster preparedness for historical collections. The University of Vermont Department of Special Collections, Goddard College Archives, Vermont French-Canadian Genealogical Society, Vermont Society of Mayflower Descendants, Vermont Sons of the American Revolution, St. Andrews Society of Vermont and Vermont Sons of Union Veterans will also be on hand to discuss the resources available at their institutions. Arcadia Publishing and the History Press will have a booth offering books about local community, neighborhoods, and connections to the past.
