Fieldstone Common Guests Turn Out for NERGC

This past week Fieldstone Common host, Marian Pierre-Louis, spent four days at the New England Regional Genealogical Conference (NERGC) in Manchester, New Hampshire. This is the premier regional genealogical event in New England and it only takes place every two years with the locations varying across the area.

While at NERGC she ran into quite a few Fieldstone Common guests.

Richard G. Tomlinson, author of Witchcraft Prosecution: Chasing the Devil in Connecticut was the October 18, 2012 guest on Fieldstone Common. He turned up at NERGC to help in the Connecticut Society of Genealogists booth where they also sold copies of his book. I’m sure a few lucky folks got autographed copies. Listen to the podcast of his interview.
