DCHA to Host History Conference

Making History in Delaware County, Saturday, May 13 – 1pm to 4pm

Members of local historical societies, local historians, and interested members of the general public are invited to attend the Delaware County Historical Association’s seventh Biennial Historical Conference, Making History in Delaware County. The conference is specifically designed for the town and village historical societies and local historians of Delaware County.

For 2023 we have created an afternoon’s agenda focusing on various topics of interest to historians and historical organizations. Presenters will include Mary Liz and Paul Stewart, co-founders of the Underground Railroad Education Center, and Claire Lovell of the South Central Regional Library Council (SCRLC). Claire will explain the SCRLC’s NYS Heritage website and how to upload images there. The conference ends with a round-table discussion concerning local history and historical societies.

All sessions will provide for questions/answers and we invite input and participation. Attendees are asked to bring questions of concern for your society for the round-table discussion, as well as dates of planned events, and handouts/brochures which can be shared for cross-promoting.

We are looking forward to an informative and enjoyable afternoon and hope that you will be able to attend. Advance registration is requested by May 6, 2023. There is no charge to attend.
