Dear Walter
Dear Reader, Please send your Missives and Queries regarding the Newberry, the Humanities, or this season of Modern Existence generally construed. I shall have my intern-amanuensis, Henry, submit my Reply with a haste that would shame Atalanta. I may be reached, through the ghostly conduit you call “EMAIL,” at dearwalter@newberry.org, or through recourse to a special "WEBFORM." Sincerely yours, Walter L. Newberry
Genealogy Blog
Upcoming genealogy events, new resources, research tips, and other information from Newberry Reference and Genealogy Services.
