January 2017 Calendar

Dear Members,

Happy New Year! 2017 brings the Southold Historical Society, its members and the Southold community various opportunities to grow, learn and enjoy the history of this place we call home. We are looking forward to opportunities to share and collect oral histories about our ancestors and our life experiences here in Southold.

We will start out the year by collecting oral histories about our Founding Families. These will be recorded and available for all to enjoy during our Founding Families Weekend in June (June 2-4). Other activities will center around “genealogy” with lectures and talks by experts in this field. All will be encouraged to contact the historical society with questions about their particular families.

And finally, in collaboration with the Southold Free Library, the program, www.Ancestry.com is available for use at the library.

Join us in sharing stories, doing research and maybe being surprised at what we learn about our ancestors and community!

Karen Lund Rooney, Director
