Hat’s off to the Society and particularly to DGS President Phoebe Doherty, her husband Tom and to the incoming DGS President Fran Allmond and her husband Charles for their invitation and hospitality. The Union City Grille was a great place to eat.
What a terrific group. The hall was packed and they asked lot’s of questions ranging from the coverage of Delaware newspapers in GenealogyBank and a non-stop presentation of the variety of examples found in historical newspapers.
Examples like: birth announcements; homesteaders; genealogies; death records & obituaries; mothers; fathers; military records; Hispanic newspapers; tips for finding people with common names and people who changed their names!
