Reconstructing History & Genealogy: Mom's WWII Letters with Corinne H. Smith
Thursday, April 25 at 6:30 pm
Registration appreciated, but not required: https://suttonpubliclibrary.assabetinteractive.com/calendar/reconstructing-history-genealogy-moms-wwii-letters/
Corinne's discovery of more than 100 letters brought unexpected insights and connections. In
May 2017, she found her mother's stash of letters from 16 servicemen that she had corresponded with in 1944-1945. Most of the men were from her mother's hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, or from her college roommate's hometown of Trenton, New Jersey. Nearly all of the writers were now gone and could no longer offer information or explanations for what they had written. Corinne began to trace the soldiers' family trees with one goal in mind: to return the letters in person to their children. Learn about her on-going project, and hear some of the stories of the men, their  experiences, and what their relatives have to say today. This presentation links history and genealogy to presentday research and diligence. It revisits a time that we may not want to forget.
