Reconstructing History & Genealogy: Mom’s WWII Letters

6:30pm - 7:30pm

“Reconstructing History & Genealogy: Mom’s WWII Letters”

In May 2017, Corinne Smith found her mother's stash of more than 80 letters from 16 servicemen she had corresponded with in 1944-1945. Corinne began to trace the soldiers' family trees with one goal in mind: to return the letters in person to their children. This presentation links history and genealogy to present-day research and diligence. It revisits a time that we may not want to forget. And it may prompt others to wonder for themselves what treasures lurk in their own old family boxes, and how they can share the information with others.

 

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Ludlow Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

 

Corinne H. Smith is a writer who is originally from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She served for several years on the board of The Blair County Genealogical Society in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Her first book was a self-published family history titled "From Saxony to the Lehigh Valley: The Descendents of Ludwig Hossfeld" (1992). Since then, she has written several books about American author Henry David Thoreau. She is a former librarian and lives in Gardner, Massachusetts.
