  1. Arriving Wed 19 Sep; leaving Tue 25 Sep.

  2. I arrive Tuesday, 18 Sep and will travel to Hadley MA Wednesday the 19th. After the reunion I will travel in Connecticut for two weeks visiting Warren, Sharon, Derby, Branford and probably Yale and the State Library in Hartford.

  3. I will arrive on Wed, 19 Sep, and leave on Sun, the 23rd, I think. I am interested in going over to the Genealogical and Local History Library in Springfield on Thursday afternoon, and would be happy to give a ride to 2-3 others. (The back seat of my car is comfortable once you're in it, but it's kind of challenging to climb in and out!)

    If you are interested in carpooling to Springfield, please let me know. My email link is on the Sackett website.
