    Beginner Colonial Era Research, through the Life of Anne Marbury Hutchinson - Kim Richardson-Remote-Members Only

    Registration Deadline-10am Wed Jun 17

    Join us as Kim Richardson will be presenting information and examples for the beginner Colonial-era researcher are interwoven into this story of Anne Hutchinson, who emigrated to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1634 and was a champion of freedom far ahead of her time. Wrongly banished and excommunicated, she was a well-acknowledged leader among the founders of Rhode Island - the progressive, daring group who created the charter that served as the blueprint for our nation's Constitution. In her last days, she and most of her children were living in the Bronx when they were murdered. Only her daughter Susanna survived; she was kidnapped and eventually ransomed as part of a peace treaty. This truly amazing account of the earliest beginnings of this great nation is definitely something you do not want to miss and will provide information about colonial-era recordkeeping and our nation's birth which will assist with researching those way-way-back ancestors.
