you seen the Spring Newsletter yet? If you have I think you'll agree
that it is brilliant...as usual! And if you haven't....well there's no time
like the present. Take a few minutes, put your feet up and prepare to be
distracted from your cares for awhile.
something about the Charlotte County Museum in St. Stephen, take a sneak peek
at one of the houses on the 2015 Heritage Homes Tour on August 8th,
peruse the second installment of May Greenlaw's memories about her family, and
read “From the Director's Chair” where Ernie Depatie (our tech wizard
extraordinaire) talks about the consequences for the Archives of Microsoft
pulling the plug on support for Windows XP...a truly remarkable tale of
Charlotte County ingenuity. There's even a short vignette about a certain tree
in St. George! I wonder if you can guess which one?
Take a load off and take a look at the
Spring 2015 Newsletter.
Your Charlotte County Archives would like to tell you about our new strategy for keeping you informed!
is a series of emails highlighting the resources and services
of the Archives. The emails will be extremely short, like the one
below, but we hope you will follow the link to the full article on our
web site to find out more about the topics which interest you. If you, or anyone you know, would be interested in receiving our Taproot emails, please use the "subscribe

Often the biggest challenge in doing family research is just getting started. Over a four week period starting September 8, 2015 at 7 PM, small classes of interested “budding”genealogists will be assisted in getting their own genealogical journey started. You will have the opportunity to benefit from instruction, and some hands-on-work in a small group setting. For those with Charlotte County roots, our Archives may be the very best place for you to search your ancestors. Even for those who don’t have Charlotte County roots, there is something for you as well. All you need to bring is a laptop , if you have one, and any notes you may have. Cost is $15 per session. Register early. Class size is limited. Contact: Donna Muir at email@example.com
