I am a semi-retired Virtual Assistant. I do transcription work when I am not documenting and writing up my family history. I have transcribed oral histories for the Newtown (CT) Oral History project, the Ulysses (NY) Oral History Project, and Newfield (NY) Archives Alive Oral History Project. I am a member of the Newtown Historical Society, Ulysses Historical Society, Connecticut Society of Genealogists, and member and docent of the Anna Maria Island Historical Society.
RE: Agard and Nunn Obits Fingers crossed that the presentation will be[was?] a success. The first one is always the hardest. When I made my first major conference talk, the moderator misunderstood and thought presenters were limited to fifteen and not twenty-five minutes. She sounded the five minute warning tone, and I started flipping though my carefully timed power point slides like a mad woman.Eventually I could laugh about it [not just right away...]
Would you like me to send redacted versions w/o names of living persons? Or would you like to do that yourself? I'd planned to forward in the next day or so biographical information for Maude Agard, noting that her recipe for bittersweet mint pie is still being published in Duncan Hines's [yes, he was a real person] Adventures in Good Cooking. Most recent edition is 2014 [w/Louis Hatchett]. Quite an accomplishment!
I remember the Agard family quite fondly. A very talented family, and tremendous supporters of the community
