Fun Times at Maryland Day

My table at the Terp2Terp Marketplace.

This weekend, I had the opportunity to exhibit at the first Terp2Terp Marketplace during Maryland Day on the College Park campus of the University of Maryland. I had a great time talking about house histories and Creative Memories products with the alumni and family members who came through the exhibit hall. Thanks to all who stopped by to chat!

Other businesses on display in the exhibit hall included caterers, an organic personal product vendor, and even a music company.

Amazing Discovery

Ready my latest blog post about how my History of the Bartlett Pear Inn turned up a photographic gem related to The Hill, an historically significant African American neighborhood in Easton.

Current Projects

I’m headed to Salt Lake City for RootsTech 2012 in a couple of days. I’m working on several exciting projects in the meantime though!

First is a house history that will be a gift for someone, but once the gift is given, I should be able to share it here.

Second, I’m working on a new Album Rescue Project. I purchased two more photo albums from an antique store here in Easton and I’m trying to track down to whom they belonged, and hopefully, their descendants. The photos in these albums are attached to black paper with various types of adhesive. I’m removing them to a new photo-safe album from Creative Memories.

Last, and certainly not least, I’m helping out Historic Easton with a couple of preservation projects. Check out their new web site for more information about the group! I’ll post further updates in coming weeks.

Friends Album: Meet the Present-Day Youngs

An article ran in The Journal News of New York this morning about the return of the Friends Album to the Young family. It’s so neat to finally see the photo of Stanley Young III and his father, Stanley Young, Jr. I searched for them for so long.

It’s also really interesting to read how they are seeing familiar features in so many of those pictured in the Friends Album — it’s just as I’d hoped. In addition to the identified people in the album, it appears that still more of those in the photographs also are relatives of the Youngs.
