Hudson, New Hampshire Genealogy Club Resumes Tomorrow

The Hudson, New Hampshire Rodgers Memorial Library Genealogy Club will be starting up again this month after taking a break in July and August. On September 13 at 1:30 we have a special program, a visit from Aimee Fogg, author of “The Granite Men of Henri-Chapelle".  NH Author Aimee Fogg's journey to discover what happened to her uncle who perished while fighting in Europe during World War II became a mission to tell the stories of all 38 of New Hampshire's men who are buried at the Henri-Chapelle cemetery in Belgium.  She will be the featured speaker this month at the Genealogy Club meeting, discussing the research she  undertook to tell the stories of these NH men who gave their lives for our country so long ago. 

The Genealogy club meets the second Friday of each month at 1:30. Everyone is welcome. 

Local genealogist Janice Conway will be helping to facilitate Genealogy Club meetings now that librarian Gayle St. Cyr has retired. Laurie Jasper will be the staff representative to the club. They want to know what you are interested in, programs & speakers, classes, informal help sessions and discussions etc.

Janice will be sending out information about genealogy events throughout New England and perhaps beyond. If you do not want to receive information about other genealogy events, let Janice know when she sends out a mailing and she will take you off that list.
