Look what arrived in the post this morning! It’s a lovely letter from our project friends in Historic Huguenot Street, New Paltz, New York State.
Have a look at their interesting website to find out all about them. Wouldn’t it be great to go and visit them sometime!
You can also follow the 19th century day to day diaries of Julia Lawrence Hasbrouk on Susan Stessin’s blog. The Hasbrouk family were one of the original twelve Huguenot families who patented the village of New Paltz in 1677, and records can trace the prominent Lawrence family to Hertsfordshire, England as early as 1580.
