I notice that the bus to Saturday excursion in Shelbyville has filled up.  You might tell late registrants not to let that bother them.  It's an easy drive to Shelbyville and we can provide maps to the park where the Painted Stone Settlers do the Indian and pioneer encampments and the massacre reenactment.

Carolyn, if attendees have time, the KY History Center where we are meeting, has a great genealogical collection in it's library. If attendees want to travel 50 miles to Louisville, the National headquarters of the SAR is located in Louisville, KY.

Just sending this email “heads up," see attachment, that I have posted in the snail mail yesterday. I have sent the application and the check and we have requested three tee shirts, 2 each XL and 1 each XXL.
I thought that since our application is after the August 1 deadline for early registration you might want this info as early on as possible. You should get the mailed application and check early next week.
Really looking forward to being there.

My husband is a Westerfield, from the line of James Jacobus, son of Jacobus Jr. who was massacred in Kentucky.  James settled in Harrodsburg and is buried at Mud Meeting house.  My husband's family line continues through the Cozine marriage and all of the males born as John, David or John David JD.   All the folks buried at Mud Meeting House are his relatives, yet he has never been told by anyone in the Harrodsburg/Danville family tree.

We have not attended before, so this should be interesting.
