Objects of Our afection

For those of you who don't have a Wednesday night class, check this out on Nov. 3.

GENEALOGY EVENT / After their mother’s death, Lisa Tracy and her sister faced several households’ worth of furniture and memorabilia and decided to track down the history behind each object. The search for family stories led Tracy all the way from her New Jersey home to the Philippines, as well as to the archives at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Tracy will talk about her journey and read excerpts of her newly released memoir, Objects of Our Affection: Uncovering My Family’s Past, One Chair, Pistol, and Pickle Fork at a Time. Followed by a book signing. FREE for members, $15 for nonmembers. Cost includes a one-day admission to HSP's research library.
