    In every family, someone ends up with “the stuff.” It is the goal of The Family Curator to inspire, enlighten, and encourage other family curators in their efforts to preserve and share their own family treasures.

    More Fun in New England

    Some folks go kayaking, skiing or leaf-peeping in New England. Mr. Curator and I left NERGC to drive to New Hampshire for some family time with our nephew and a lot of intensive research time.

    When you are looking for ancestors in Vermont, it all goes back to the Town. Today we spent four hours looking for marriages in town records. The early marriages are mixed in with land and town meeting notices, and tough to find. Mr. Curator just won't quit, even when I am SO ready for a break. The high - low?- point came when we discovered that the subject of our search may not have been widow after all. This upends all hypothesis.

    So, tomorrow, a new tactic. County probate records were moved to the state archives as of Jan 2011, necessitating a trip to Middlesex to view the files. Wish us luck!

    I'm glad you had a nice time in Springfield, MA last week. Could you tell me your VT and NH towns. I've got quite a few ancestors from both states (I'm in MA), one never knows if we have a connection. Many thanks.

    Hello Barbara, Thanks for asking about my research. I am working on families in several Vermont counties. Where are your folks?
