Many of the transcriptions found here are now in published form. They have been published by the Orange County Genealogical Society (in Goshen, New York). Volume 3 includes my Volume 3 and Volume 5. Volume 4 includes my four parts of New Milford history. There is a planned Volume 5, which will include my Volumes 6, 7, and 8, Part 1, which is about 250 transcriptions. They can be purchase through the Genealogical Society. Just Google them and print out the order form. Or they can be purchased from the Warwick Historical Society. They are also on sale at the gift shop at Baird's Tavern. I would like to thank the Genealogical Society and Dan Burrows for their efforts. Started a new blog for images of Warwick.

The Mystery Photo, Part 1
Mark, from the New Milford Deli, let me make a copy of this photograph. I think he got it from Peter Martin, but not sure. Had no idea as to what, where, or when. While driving back to central New Jersey from visiting my father in New Milford the "Germantown Boys" part clicked in. I had typed up a number of transcriptions regarding the activities at Wawayanda Lake. There was a Germantown Camp at the lake. The only Germantown I knew of was a section of Philadelphia , and these boys looked liked city guys. So it seemed logical that these young men came up from Germantown to camp at Wawayanda Lake. That could explain the "what." The next post explores the where and when.
