Brick Store Museum


Monica Grabin presents: “Facing the Facts of My Family Tree: History Not Really for Singing”

While most of us find genealogy fascinating, not everything in our family stories is noble and uplifting. Monica Grabin, who was born in New York, has lived in New England for 45 years and in Kennebunk for 32. Her family, however, is not from the Northeast, and has roots stretching through some of the most iconic events in American history. The research she and her husband, Bill, have done into her origins has uncovered numerous stories which are part of a bitter legacy. This talk will take a look at history that many of us would rather not discuss, but which we must face squarely, via a very personal journey on her family tree.

This Third Thursday Talk will occur at a special time (7:00pm). Light refreshments will be served.

$5 Per person, Free to Museum Members.

Supported by the Maine Humanities Council, with additional support from the Captain Lord Mansion.
