    Ms. Snow… I’m Bob Snyder, and I’m the program chairperson for the Midland Genealogical Society, Midland, Michigan. I’d like to contact you regarding your program on 19 Century Marriage Customs. I have in mind either March 16, 2016, or May 18, 2016. The March meeting would be a joint project with the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library. The May meeting is our annual meeting, and we usually try to do something unique for that one. You can contact me at 989-839-9644, or at If you use e-mail, ignore my spamblocker… I’ll get your message.
