Researching my hometown of Trilby is particularly interesting to me. While growing up, I would hear intriguing stories of how it had once been a booming place and started recording the community's history even in middle school. When unearthing old treasures that would surface in our pasture on the old townsite and hearing these old stories, I felt like I was growing up on the site of ancient Babylon or some other great culture!
While tracing the genealogy of the families of the Trilby community, I also enjoy my own family history...My father's side in Sumter, Pasco, Hernando, Polk, and Lake Counties and my mother's side in Madison County and in south Georgia. Of course, I'm always happy to help someone else research an angle in their family too.
If you have any connection to the Trilby community and/or have an interesting Trilby story to tell, please let me know...I want to hear from you and want to write it all down!
If you have anyone buried at Trilby or are researching someone there, I hope you will let me know and we can exchange helpful information...As a result of my research, I feel like I have become well acquainted with all of the generations buried out there!
Families and friends with Trilby connections are always welcome at our annual Trilby Homecoming picnic, always held the third Saturday in March every year. Contact me for details and I hope you and your family will join us then for all the fun and fellowship. Thanks!
