(Rehoboth, MA) –
November and December the Carpenter Museum will offer two exciting programs! First the Museum will host a webinar with genealogy author and expert photo detective, Maureen Taylor. Join us November 16th at 7PM for “Who’s Little Joe: Photo Detecting 101” an interactive lecture on discovering who’s who in their family pictures. You’ll learn 10 easy steps for naming those unidentified pictures tucked away in shoeboxes.

Maureen Taylor is a frequent keynote speaker on photo identification, photograph preservation, and family history at historical and genealogical societies, museums, conferences, libraries, and other organizations across the U.S., London and Canada. She’s the author of several books and hundreds of articles and her television appearances include The View andThe Today Show. She’s been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Better Homes and Gardens, The Boston Globe, Martha Stewart Living, Germany’s top newspaper Der Spiegel, American Spirit, and The New York Times.

Saturday December 3rd we will host our first ever open-hearth cooking demonstration! An interactive program where guests will get to try their hands at cooking 18th century recipes using a real open fire hearth and brick oven. The menu includes mince meat pies, fresh baked bread, stewed apples and more! After cooking your meal, we will eat together as a group! Tickets to this event are extremely limited and will not last long.
