report of yesterday.
||From Nancy Rogers : Please thank Sherry Lampman Nichols for
her transcription of the 1855 Horseheads census. These records are
so valuable in many ways but in particular because of the difficulty of
obtaining birth, marriage and death records from the state of New York.
She deserves a major reward for this effort.

||Our friend Bengt from Stockholm returns home after a visit to
this cournty. Following is a note on some of what he saw here.
I looked down when we were approaching Stockholm and saw lots yellow
dots in the green spruce and pine forests. They showed to be birches in
autumn dress. Not much to talk about after having experienced a
fantastic Indian Summer all the way Boston-Niagara-NYC. There were
much more of leaf woods along the roads than I had expected and also valleys
and high hills. I have heard about the dramatic colours before, but
seeing this during two days bus ride was absolutely fantastic: light
red, dark red, orange, and some yellow. Cameras clicked and filmed.
We were 17 persons in a 20-seat bus with a Russian driver who operated
it like a Moscow taxi, same speed as the cars. There was time for a night
visit to the Canadian side of the falls with dinner in the top
restaurant of a tall tower, and morning visit to the American side
including the boat ride facing the falling waters. The driver did not take
the bigger highways via Syracuse to Binghamton as the guide had
thought, but the crossover via Dansville and Elmira. Those roads were
much developed compared to my old roadmap. A few miles ahead of Corning
we had a leg stretcher at a parking were 4H offered coffee and cakes at
voluntary payment. Later at full speed I noticed signs to Elmira, Chemung,
and road 34, where Lockwood cemetery is located.
At the NYC bus tours we had a Scandinavian speaking local guide who
showed us lots of spots I haven't seen before, including restored Harlem.
She directed the driver left and right while facing backward towards us.
In Boston the local guide took us to Harvard where W had studied, without
learning much he thought. Iceland is worth its own saga....
Thus, we were busy all the time and I had missed a lot if I had made
a stopover at Elmira. Now I must consider another trip to NY next year.
||Bradford County Historical Society
"Thursday Night at the Museum" is a series of monthly programs that
have been scheduled for the upcoming summer and fall seasons at the Bradford
County Historical Society. Each program will begin at 6 p.m. in the BCHS
Great Room, 109 Pine Street, Towanda, PA.
Voice from the Civil War - A Living History Presentation - presented
by Eileen Patch. Because a grieving mother saved the Civil War letters
her son wrote home from his service in the 89th New York, Eileen Patch
of Endwell, NY inherited them. She transcribed, researched and annotated
the 59 letters. Dressed as her great grandmother, Sarah Englis in historically
accurate 1880s clothes, Ms. Patch will look back 20 years to the war and
read excerpts from the soldier's letters.
