Finding Your Family: a genealogy program at the Historical Society

by Patricia Pereira
January 28, 2018

Have you wondered about your ancestry? Genealogy has seen a significant upsurge in popularity over the past few years, and the internet has made the task much easier. But the challenge of starting your pathway back through the generations can seem like a daunting task. Join us for starting your personal trip back to the past as we help those who need advice how to get started on that challenging yet very entertaining activity. If you already have your generations mapped out, please attend to give others a helping hand or tell us about how you started.  Your tips and hints will help others. We will present the resources that the Holliston Historical Society has for local research, as well as the free and not-so-free resources now available on the internet.

547 Washington Street, Holliston

“Finding Your Family” a genealogy program with Joanne Hulbert.  Sunday, February 11 at 2:30.  (Snow date February 18).

The Much-anticipated Mudville Traffic Study is Here!

by Chris Cain

When I studied science in school (in addition to reading, writing, and 'rithmetic of course), the professor would say, "In God We Trust, All Others Bring Data." Holliston's Board of Selectmen must have gone to the same school because they wanted data before considering any traffic volume and speed mitigation strategies in Mudville. The McMahon group recently delivered their 104 page report to the Selectmen (and to the public via the town's website). https://www.townofholliston.us/sites/hollistonma/files/uploads/mcmahon_mudville_traffic_pattern_analysis_memo_2018-11-07.pdf Rather than having everyone read the entire report, below are some of the data presented in a 'did you know' format. Did you know the current speed limit on all streets in Mudville is exactly the same as on Route 16 in downtown Holliston - 30 mph. Looking at the compilation photo above, what might strike you - besides that there are no speed limit signs anywhere in Mudville?
