Sharon Thorpe, associate curator of the Sullivan County Historical Society, is installing the finishing touches on a new exhibit at the Sullivan County Museum, in Hurleyville, NY. She gathered authentic materials spanning two centuries of life in Sullivan County, bringing vivid descriptions of specific eras. Her intent is to show life in a time before modern conveniences became available.
The summer has been quite busy at the Sullivan County Historical Society. Not only have we had many visitors from all over the country looking for their Sullivan County roots in our genealogy archives, many visitors have been coming to the museum to see the wonderful Concord Exhibit. Be sure you don't miss that exhibit..
As always we can use volunteers to help in the genealogy and archives areas. We always welcome people to file our obituary cards so that our collection can continue to grow. We appreciate the donation by the Ethelbert Crawford Library in Monticello of a card catalogue to expand our collection. If filing cards does not appeal to you how about helping with our clipping collections or help organize some of our clipping binders/scrapbooks? An hour or two a week would help.
Do you like history? Do you like genealogy? The Sullivan County Historical Society in Hurleyville (the Museum and Research Center) is looking for volunteers in many areas, especially genealogy. No specific skills are required but enthusiasm is a must! Two to four hours a week (or more) would be desirable.
Call the Museum or drop by for more information, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm or Sunday 1 pm - 4 pm. 845-434-8044
