  • Making a Family Tree with Stoner House Family Tree Examples

    Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019
    Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

    The Manheim Township Historical Society is partnering with Manheim Township Public Library on a three-part genealogy series.  In this third session, Darvin L. Martin will outline some of the findings from his project in conjunction with the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society, which has currently tested over 300 individuals and is providing the basis for specifically constructing family lineages from before the time of surnames. He will also demonstrate how to create your own family tree, focusing on the DNA and family history of the Historic Stoner House Stoner family.  Refreshments & meet the speaker at 6:30 PM.  Talk starting at 7:00 PM.  (See also February 19th and March 18th)

    BIO:  Darvin L. Martin began to construct his own family tree by the age of ten, and at that time could not have even dreamed about the future ways science would enable us to connect everyone into a world family tree. Always passionate about history, particularly local history not found in common textbooks, Martin blended a career of scientific research with the pursuit of his own ancestry, seeking to determine the cultural, religious and societal norms that shaped the choices of his forebears.During his second year of chairing the Lancaster Family History Conference, Martin invited noted genealogist Megan Smolenyak to describe the upcoming world of DNA analysis and how this applies to family history. Soon after, Martin began his own epic DNA journey.

  • Writers’ Group

    Tuesday, May 7th, 2019
    Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    This friendly writers’ group, which meets the first and third Tuesdays of the month, is for writers who are serious about their craft and in getting their work published. Writers of any genre, from mysteries and contemporary relationship fiction to creative non-fiction and children’s literature, are welcome. Anybody interested in joining the group must talk to Lis King, the group’s leader, before attending their first meeting. This will ensure that the expectations of the group and the individual are met. She will be handling registration for the program and can be reached at 717-299-9368.

    We see this as a critique group meeting in a friendly and relaxed environment. There are many talented writers in our area, and we know that feedback from others is extremely important to them. The group follows a concept that has proven invaluable to the writing community. Participating writers take turns submitting work in progress, not to exceed a certain number of pages. Manuscripts are emailed to members in advance of meetings so they can be read at members’ leisure and the meeting hours are reserved for constructive criticism. This helps writers present their work correctly to agents and publishers. But even more importantly, writers tell us that this format also helps them sharpen their focus, harness their creativity and give them ideas.
