Crime and Punishment

The October meeting saw a small but very interested group of members and guests gather to listen to our guest speaker, John Cann. He arrived a bit tardy having been misled as to the meeting room, but after combatting some technology demons, he gave a fascinating and informative talk about discovering your not so salubrious ancestors in the State Records Archives. There is no doubt that even though he spoke for 90 minutes, he had only skimmed the surface of his knowledge of the archives. There is a wealth of untapped resources available to the historian who explores the State Archives website or who ventures out to their repository at Kingswood.
