    Contact: Reference   978-623-8430   rdesk@mhl.org
   

Locating information about an adoption in your family takes patience, good judgement and a broad knowledge base of laws, history and record types. Whether the adoption you are researching is for a modern day reunification effort, or a deceased ancestor you are trying to place on your family tree, successfully identifying birth parents uncovers the kind of rich and emotional family stories that genealogists love to collect. 

Larry Maurice began adoption reunion searching in 1992, and was a member of a research and advocacy team that worked to open adoption records in NH in 2004.  He has been a volunteer at the New Hampshire Vital Records Genealogy Research Room for twenty-five years, and is a contributing member of the American Canadian Geneaological Society in Manchester, NH. Come learn the basic steps of beginning adoption genealogy work and listen to some rich tales of reunion success and persistent brick walls.

This month's Night Readers selection will be THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON by Kelly Barnhill.  

"Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and deliver them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. 
One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule--but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her--even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she’s always known."

    Contact: Reference   978-623-8430   rdesk@mhl.org
   

Are you thinking that now is the time to begin eating healthier, but you don’t want to give up those desserts you really enjoy?  Do food allergies or dietary restrictions prevent your family members from enjoying the sweets they crave?  Would you like to know how to adapt your favorite baked recipes to accommodate almost any food need you and your family have?  Come learn the “secrets” to substituting ingredients in recipes to create desserts which not only are healthier for you but delicious tasting, too.                      

Through her personal experience and her knowledge from cooking for family owned restaurants, Paula Castner has almost forty years of familiarity with food allergies and almost twenty years of experience with hypoglycemic and diabetic requirements. Unwilling to give up the treats she likes to eat, she has spent years discovering and perfecting the best ways to make cakes, cookies, breads, and more which meet a variety of dietary needs but also satisfy the desire for something tasty and sweet.

She brings her expertise in a one and a half to two hour workshop format, including handouts to bring home.  She has spoken for PTOs, churches and libraries, and she has her own blog, pajamaliving.wordpress.com, which addresses how people can comfortably live the life they want, eating what they enjoy, despite dietary limitations.
