Announcing a special event under consideration for 2021 - Our genealogist Coralee Griswold is willing to plan a Western Heritage Tour of Salt Lake City UTAH for May 10-18, 2021. This is your chance to visit the famous Family History Library, a genealogical research facility in downtown Salt Lake City. The library is open to the public free of charge and is operated by FamilySearch, the genealogical arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Coralee will be on hand to help you navigate and will plan other activities of interest to Griswolds. If you are interested in this opportunity, please let us know and we will keep you posted as plans develop. Email Contact@griswoldfamily.org or send a note to Coralee Griswold, 1024 Barrington, Elko, NV 89801
Looking for a location for our 2020 Reunion and Annual Business Meeting Dates August 7-9 2020. The Executive Board discussed several possible locations but we need your input before our August 2019 meeting. If you are planning to attend a 2020 Reunion, and have a preference please let us know. Even better, if you live in the area and are willing to help us plan the reunion, let us know. We have several members who are experienced in planning the event, we just need the “many hands.....” to step up. Sites under discussion are:
Colrain, Massachusetts;located on the northern border of the county and state, with Windham County, Vermont. Colrain's town center is located 9 miles (14 km) northwest of Greenfield, 45 miles (72 km) north of Springfield, and approximately 100 miles (160 km) west-northwest of Boston.. Griswolds were prominent in the cotton mill industry, and founding the Griswold Memorial Library in 1908.
Another suggestion is Brattleboro VT (10 miles north of Mass. border).
Also suggested were Savannah GA and Washington DC area.
If you have any suggestions for a place to hold our Reunion please email: Contact@griswoldfamily.org
Plan a “Reunion Within A Reunion” and invite other family members to meet you at the event. It’s a great way to get together!
We need members to volunteer to host or to help with a reunion. We have a Reunion Advisory Panel consisting of former Reunion chairs who can provide guidelines for running a reunion and share their expertise with you.
We will go wherever there is a Griswold connection and a group of people to host us!
