From Glastonbury again October 26, 2016

Filed under: Genealogy,Glastonbury Conn — Janet @ 7:47 pm

Here I am back in New England again after less than a month  not for a high school reunion but for a sort of family reunion with  2 out of our 3 sons and their wives and children.  Glorious sunny days here and lots of laughter and fun.  A trip to L L Bean of course and Barnes and Noble and the local yarn store.  And an afternoon at a Corn Maize.  Good food and drink.  I managed to get to the Glastonbury Historical Society Museum and searched superficially for any familiar names.  I know from  my genealogy research that my ancestors were among the early settlers all along the Connecticut River Valley.  Research continues.
