Reconstructing History & Genealogy: Mom’s WWII Letters VIRTUAL EVENT

6:30pm - 7:30pm

“Reconstructing History & Genealogy: Mom’s WWII Letters”

In May 2017, Corinne Smith found her mother's stash of more than 80 letters from 16 servicemen she had corresponded with in 1944-1945. Corinne began to trace the soldiers' family trees with one goal in mind: to return the letters in person to their children. This presentation links history and genealogy to present-day research and diligence. It revisits a time that we may not want to forget. And it may prompt others to wonder for themselves what treasures lurk in their own old family boxes, and how they can share the information with others.

 

This program is supported by a grant from the Ludlow Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

 

Corinne H. Smith is a writer who is originally from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She served for several years on the board of The Blair County Genealogical Society in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Her first book was a self-published family history titled "From Saxony to the Lehigh Valley: The Descendents of Ludwig Hossfeld" (1992). Since then, she has written several books about American author Henry David Thoreau. She is a former librarian and lives in Gardner, Massachusetts.

Declutter and Organize Your Closet VIRTUAL EVENT

6:00pm - 7:00pm

This hands-on, virtual workshop guides you through the process of organizing a closet that makes getting dressed take less time with less stress. 

Set up your device near your closet so you can get to work. Intimidated by the idea of pulling everything out of your closet? Have no fear, we’ll use a minimal mess technique that allows you to declutter your closet without worrying about ending the night with your bed hidden by a pile of clothing you still need to sort through. You don’t need any special organizing products for this process, but you do want boxes (or bags) that you can fill with clothing you want to donate or sell. 

Susan McCarthy of ALessClutteredLife.com is a professional organizer, writer, and coach. She is a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals. Through NAPO University she’s received Specialist Certificates in Life Transitions, Workplace Productivity, and Residential Organizing, and Household Management.
