Final Call for Syllabus Queries

Exploring New Paths to Your Roots continues the tradition of printing genealogical queries in the NERGC Syllabus. The several hundred who attend will see your question, and hopefully solve your brick wall(s), and you don’t need to attend the conference to submit syllabus queries!

Cost remains the same as in the past - $5 per query, or three queries for $10. (Maximum of 50 words in each query.) You do not have to attend the conference to submit queries, and there is no limit to the number of queries you may submit.

Please type or print each query on a separate 8.5” x 11" sheet of paper. Preferred format asks you to use standard abbreviations, and have your dates written as 27 July 1927 (counted as one word). Show birth; death; marriage - in that order - with location of event shown before date, and all known information stated before the question is asked. Editor reserves the right to edit for space and/or clarity, without changing thought. Remember to include your contact information; name, address; Email.

SAMPLE QUERY: JONES< Mehitable b. Hartford CT abt 1790, m. Middletown CT 23 Mar 1823 to BUSHNELL, John, b. Hartford or Wethersfield, CT c. 1785. Need bdt., par of John. Janet Johnson; 50 Round Tree Road; Mashpee, MA 02649 or JJ@aol.com.
