Event: Ancestry & You: Coming To America: The Italians

Location: South Coastal Library
43 Kent Ave
Bethany Beach, Delaware

Details:

Call to register: 302-539-5231

The popularity of ancestry research reflects a deep hunger for knowledge about self.
Our ancestors endow us with more than genes; they help connect us to ourselves. Cultural inheritances are a reservoir to draw on for guidance and affirmation.

What memories are worth preserving & sharing?

Working on a memoir the last 6 years required me to go deeper into the story of my ancestors and the history of the U.S. What a distance my famiglia has traveled in the last century, from mostly illiterate peasants!

Register early to reserve a seat.

All programs designed and presented by Jo-Ann Vega, published author, dynamic & informative speaker with 30 years of experience presenting to business, academic, and community groups.

Coming In May


Having completed extensive renovations at New Castle’s old library facility, the Historical Society will reopen its doors in early May, 2018. Its first program offering will be dedicated to a year-long exhibit of memorabilia of the New Castle Italian immigrant community, showcasing what life among these seventy-or-so families was like. It will feature their traditions and customs, touching, too, on the social life, the church and school, holy days and holiday celebrations, music, and the dinner table.
