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. Go to:

Family photo. This is my brother James Hann. I don't remember him ever looking like this. He sort of looks like a member of a 70's band. At the time he was making snow and felt the need to be armed. This is not code. He was actually making snow at a ski resort in Vernon, New Jersey. Were people stealing snow? I will have to ask him.

Again from family photos. This photo was taken in 1945 in front of the New Milford Methodist Church. Read left to right, front row: Grandmother Ella Hann, Aunt Louise Card, Ann Hann and me. Anyone know anyone else, let me know.
