A Note from the President:
We are lucky enough to have had several "Angels" come to our aid this past year.
Mrs. Dorothy Sinon, daughter of Governor Arthur James of Plymouth, donated the funds needed to install a new heating system on the lower level of the Historical Society. Thank you, Dorothy! And thank you to Jim Youells, Board Member, who supervised the installation!
Another Angel was Mr. Frank Henry, owner of Martz Lines. Mr. Henry responded immediately and generously to our need for an oversized scanner. Thank you, Mr. Henry!
Patrick Appnel has been a really wonderful help with stocking the office supplies, buying the office computer, and so many other things that we can't even count them!
Paul Roberts, who has given us all of this father's and grandfathers's magistral records and early Plymouth history books.
We also thank, most sincerely, all of the other donors who contributed so generously to our Historical Society. We could not do without you!
CHEST OF HISTORY
We are members of
the community working with all people to enhance the quality of life in our towns. We do
this by providing educational and historical lectures, adding to and maintaining our data
collection of genealogical CDs and historical items, and by responding to the community
needs as they are brought to our attention. Please contact us if we can assist you in any
Historical Society was founded in 1986 by a group of interested citizens from the Plymouth
area. They were headed by Mr. James Moses, the founder. In 1995 the Society was
given the old Welsh Baptist Church on Gaylord Ave. in Plymouth. Built in 1876, this old
church is a lovely example of the dedicated craftsmanship of the early Welsh coalminers.
Please stop by during business hours for a tour!
Through the generous support of donors and the computer expertise of one of our members, we probably have the largest collection of genealogical research CDs in the northeast. If you would like to have a list of what we have available, please email us. Include your email address.
If you have a
research question, you can submit that there, too.
If you would like to
send us your family tree to be preserved at our historical society, mail it to the address
below and Thank You!
If you have some money you don't know what to do with, and want to contribute to a worthy cause, please feel free! All of our donations go to running the Historical Society, and we will never disabuse your trust.
