Milford’s next Founding Families' Weekend will be on July 19, 20, and 21, 2019. You have months to think about this, but you can mark your calendars today. Now is the time to check your own family ancestry and see if you are related to one (or more!) of those early settlers. Richard and Jane Platt will help you find out, so just email genealogy questions to Jane Platt – firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the previous Founding Families Weekend in 2014 there were 297 attendees from 26 states, plus Washington, D.C. and Ontario, Canada, but few were from Milford. The Platts are offering a chance for local people who don’t know their Milford ancestry connections to find out. Their hope is that the 2019 reunion will be even larger.
Next summer's gathering will mark the 380th year since the simultaneous founding of Milford and the First Church of Christ, Congregational.
