Genealogy Methodology: A Beginner's Guide to Cemetery Sleuthing

A Beginner's Guide to Cemetery Sleuthing with Erin Moulton

Cemeteries hold invaluable clues to genealogical research. Etched in stone are names, symbols and abbreviations that not only tell us more about our ancestors but also about their place in time. This program will cover strategies to help locate your ancestor’s burial place, how to make the most out of a visit and how to decipher a variety of symbols. Includes a list of Erin’s favorite cemetery resources. Note: Most of this content covers New England cemeteries, though many symbols can be seen nationwide.

About the presenterErin E. Moulton writes books and tracks dead people. An incorrigible story lover, Erin is the author of Flutter, Tracing Stars, Chasing the Milky Way and Keepers of the Labyrinth. In addition to her creative pursuits, Erin has over 12 years of experience tracking down interesting real-life questions at the reference desk and is a librarian and genealogist. She holds a BA from Emerson College, an MFA in writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and a certificate in genealogical research from Boston University. When she isn’t searching for just the right word or just the right clue, she can be found teaching people of all ages about writing, publishing and research. Visit her online at erinemoulton.com.

This program is free, open to all and sponsored by the Durham Public Library. Please register to receive the link on the day of the program.

A Genealogy Case Study: Death of a Showman

Death of a Showman with Erin Moulton 

What happens when the subject of your genealogical research joins the carnival, moves across the country, reappears six years younger, marries a couple of times and then dies suddenly leaving a wave of confusion in his wake? Sometimes, the path of an ancestor can be long, convoluted and confusing, especially when you are limited to a small amount of evidence. When this happens, tracking an ancestor from cradle to grave and completing exhaustive research across regions can help to complete the story and answer burning questions.  Join us to track the life of one such subject. We’ll delve into vital records, newspapers, trade publications and more as we search for proof of identity. 

About the presenter: Erin E. Moulton writes books and tracks dead people. An incorrigible story lover, Erin is the author of Flutter, Tracing Stars, Chasing the Milky Way and Keepers of the Labyrinth. In addition to her creative pursuits, Erin has over 12 years of experience tracking down interesting real-life questions at the reference desk and is a librarian and genealogist. She holds a BA from Emerson College, an MFA in writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and a certificate in genealogical research from Boston University. When she isn’t searching for just the right word or just the right clue, she can be found teaching people of all ages about writing, publishing and research. Visit her online at www.erinemoulton.com.

This program is free, open to all and sponsored by the Durham Public Library. Please register to receive the link on the day of the program.

New England's Colonial Meetinghouses and their Impact on American Society

New England's Colonial Meetinghouses and their Impact on American Society

New England's colonial meetinghouses embody an important yet little-known chapter in American history. Built mostly with tax money, they served as both places of worship and places for town meetings, and were the centers of life in colonial New England communities. Using photographs of the few surviving "mint condition" meetinghouses as illustrations, Paul Wainwright tells the story of the society that built and used them, and the lasting impact they have had on American culture.

About the presenter: Artistic photography and a love of history have been long-standing interests of Paul Wainwright, but he was captured by physics in high school and eventually wound up getting a PhD in the field from Yale. Wainwright worked for many years at Bell Labs, with photography being a continuing avocation. Since 2001 he has pursued his love of photography full-time, and is especially drawn to photographing historic structures in very personal and introspective ways

This presentation is free, open to all, is sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council and hosted by the Durham Public Library. This program will take place in-person in the upstairs Oyster River Room at the library.

War and Peace and Winslow Homer: The Civil War & Its Aftermath with Jane Oneail 

One of America’s most celebrated artists, Winslow Homer, was on the front lines of the Civil War documenting battles and moments of quiet contemplation in scenes that have come to define the conflict. Homer’s paintings after the war show a beautiful, if uneasy, peace in America. In honor of Veteran's Day this week, join us on Wed., November 9th as art historian and educator Jane Oneail returns to DPL via zoom to guide us through Homer's work and impact.

About the presenter: Jane Oneail curates and delivers art appreciation programs to audiences throughout New England and beyond. Jane holds a master’s in Art History from Boston University and a master’s in Education from Harvard University. A New Hampshire native, she has worked at some of the state's most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane has also taught at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at Southern New Hampshire University.

This program is free, open to all, and sponsored by the Friends of the Library. It will take place via zoom. Please register here to receive the link on the day of the program.

Art History: A Very Rockwell Holiday

A Very Rockwell Holiday with Jane Oneail 

Join DPL to welcome back art historian and educator Jane Oneail to guide us through some of Norman Rockwell's most famous images and enjoy his depictions of the humorous and heartwarming aspects of people coming together for the holidays. Painted over several decades, Rockwell’s holiday images capture universal scenes of celebration and joy and have helped to shape American ideas about what “the most wonderful time of the year” looks like. 

About the presenter: Jane Oneail curates and delivers art appreciation programs to audiences throughout New England and beyond. Jane holds a master’s in Art History from Boston University and a master’s in Education from Harvard University. A New Hampshire native, she has worked at some of the state's most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane has also taught at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at Southern New Hampshire University.

This program is free, open to all, and sponsored by the Friends of the Library. It will take place via zoom. Please register here to receive the link on the day of the program.
