Vermont History Expo

I’ve just returned from another successful Vermont History Expo. After a one-year hiatus due to budgetary limitations, the Vermont Historical Society once again staged this very popular gathering of historians and genealogists at the Tunbridge Fairgrounds. GSV was there, as we have been at every event since the expo was inaugurated 10 years ago. Although I was principally involved in assisting at the VHS booth (where I volunteer each Tuesday), our booth was right next to the GSV booth, so I was able to keep in touch and even help out briefly from time to time. Volunteers Joann Nichols, Judy Goss, Jonathan Stevens, John Leppman and Jane Belcher staffed the GSV booth, which was quite busy for much of the two-day event. [Despite the apparent naming pattern, you did not have to have a first name beginning with “J” to work at our booth!] A brisk sales business brought in a goodly sum to the GSV treasury. A most successful and pleasant weekend.

Fall Meeting

Your board is busy behind the scenes planning for the fall membership meeting/conference. Castleton is probably out of the running because of cost considerations; we are currently considering Springfield, but are open to suggestions that members may have. Nothing is yet cast in stone. So if you have some ideas for a venue or speakers/topics please let us know. Your input is important.

Vermont Genealogy

Although the April issue of VG is a bit behind schedule, you will see it soon in your mailbox, as it is about to go to the printer. Remember that we are very interested in your contributions to the publication. Send articles, transcriptions, etc. for publication to Drew Bartley. You will find his address in each issue of VG.
