I just received an e-mail notice with the following information for anyone interested in family history in our area:

Also on June 1st, if you are planning on staying in Salem County, we will have a booth set up at the Pennsville Historical Society's Farm Day at Church Landing Farm."
Once we were the Garden State and if you are a hiker as I am and spend time in the woods and beside the creeks and rivers, you know what a blessedly watery place we live.  This morning as I walked my dog, Trixie beside the Big Timber Creek in the light shower, I couldn't help but feel how lucky we are to live in such a green and verdant place.  I would like to learn more about the farms and farm communities.  I'll be visiting a farm market held at Collingswood in the morning on June 1st, so I don't know if I can make the Pennsville Historical Society's Farm Day but things can change in an instant and I may end up there instead.
