Genealogy and Local History
Heritage Hunters meet Saturday, May 18th, at 1 pm at the Town of Saratoga Town Hall, 12 Spring St. in Schuylerville. Joseph W. Zarzynski, a maritime archaeologist from Wilton and a former Social Studies teacher in the Saratoga Springs School District, will be the speaker. He will tell the story of the 44 ft. long British warship that had been burned and then sank into Lake George during a 1757 French raid upon Fort William Henry. In 1903 it was raised and unceremoniously cut up for souvenirs. Zarzynski will examine its history, with photographs and the story of surviving and repurposed artifacts. Public is welcome. For info call 518-885-9309. Selected books will be available by check or cash.
