Learn history of Cumberland and fair at genealogical event

The next meeting of Greater Portland Chapter of the Maine Genealogical Society is 12:30 p.m. Saturday, March 7 at 2015 LDS Church, 29 Ocean House Road, Cape Elizabeth.

Carolyn Small is Exhibition Hall superintendent at Cumberland County Fair, having learned the job from her mother-in-law in the 1960s. She is also a member of the Cumberland Historical Society and has been president for the past 12 years. Although not a native of Cumberland, she has developed a great interest in the history of both the town and the fair and will present a connection between the families of Cumberland and some of the nearby towns to the Cumberland Fair.

Meetings are free and open to the public. Membership is open to anyone interested in genealogical research and is $5.
