September Program: “ Using Often Overlooked Repositories, We Tell Amasa’s Story”

Starting in June, our society started meeting in person at the Fort Collins Senior Center for our monthly programs. We hold a hybrid meeting using our Zoom video service. Capacity is 45 persons in the Foxtail II room located at the northeast end of the senior center. Lots of free parking at the senior center close to the Foxtail room. We look forward to seeing you there!

Our program begins at 6:30 pm. Visitors (not LCGS members) who wish to attend via Zoom need to register below to receive the Zoom info and handout.

President Glenn York provides a brief overview of our society with the latest committee reports followed by tonight’s program.

Program Information: “Using Often Overlooked Repositories, We Tell Amasa’s Story“.

Our story is about a young man who leaves Vermont and travels on foot in 1816 to help settle an American Frontier town in Ohio. His original letter tells us of his amazing trip. The records found to illuminate his very successful life are often overlooked in pre-1850 records. Think out of the box to find some really useful information in your early American story.
