“Cool! I didn’t know that!”

Comments like these show the enthusiasm of young participants in our summer learning programs. The one-hour program on family genealogy will be offered 4 times in August, on Wednesday at 10:00am. Eleanor Palma, a certified K-8 school teacher, counselor, and reading teacher will work with our young visitors ages 8–14 to enhance their knowledge of Dedham’s history and how their family is contributing to the story of the community. As part of the program the kids will draw their family tree on a plate as a souvenir. This is a great way to introduce genealogical concepts to the younger generation.

The program is free; the Society requests parents call ahead to reserve a space. This project is supported in part by a grant from the Dedham Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Call 781-326-1385 or Email us.
