MRHS Program: Kate Dimancescu Speaks on her Mystic Ancestors
TIME: 7:30 pm
to 8:30 pm
Mystic River Historical Society member and author Kate Dimancescu will speak about her forthcoming book, “The Forgotten Chapters: My Journey into the Past.” One part of Kate's talk will center on Williams ancestors who called Mystic home starting in the 17th Century and also Appelman ancestors, who settled in Mystic in the early 19th Century. Highlights of her talk will be stories of Indian captives, sea captains, war veterans, fellow writers, and ‘The Great Gale’. The other half will be about genealogical research, resources which helped her 'connect the dots' and could help you, and the importance of archives and historical societies. A key goal of her work is to get people excited about New England's rich early colonial history and also about researching their own family roots!
