Local speakers provide double feature program in Chittenden


 Tuesday, Aug. 8, at 7 p.m. — CHITTENDEN —This Tuesday evening, two distinguished local  Chittenden residents will present their research into two radically different subjects. 

The first program’s  topic  will be given by this year’s recipient for the Society’s Muzzy Davenport Award, an award given for outstanding work in history and interest in local history: Natalia Svoren, daughter of Jan and Elana Svoren of Chittenden. According to Jamie Gallagher, Natalia’s teacher at Barstow Memorial School, Natalia put together a rather interesting examination of the development of Chittenden over its history. Her project even garnered an award at the state level for History Day, qualifying her for a trip to the National History contest in Washington, D.C.

Following a short intermission, the second program will be “Adventures in DNA: What does it tell us about who we are?” Michael Dwyer of Pittsford, a Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists, will present an overview of the different types of DNA tests, their results, and their impact on his four decades of family research.

 The evening’s programs are free and handicap accessible. Refreshments will be served.
