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.

New Milford Beauty Contest
This photo is from the Warwick Advertiser, dated August 22, 1963. The caption is as follows: ANOTHER BEAUTY QUEEN -- Miss New Milford (Gwenda Scheuerman) poses Thursday after being crowned at carnival at the home of of Mr. and Mrs. Casper Hann. Gwenda, James Hann, and Jay Odell conducted the affair raising $25.50 for the crusade development fund for the New Milford Church. About 50 children attended the carnival, with Mrs. James Park and Mr. Clinton Odell serving as judges for the beauty contest. Kneeling at left are Vera Scheuerman and Jane Wilbur. Standing are James Hann, Patty Van Strander, Gwenda, Mrs. Park, Jay Odell and Sherly Ferguson.
I think this was the first and only Miss New Milford Beauty Contest. That means that Gwenda Scheuerman stills holds the title.
