Father Tim
Tim Schenck is an Episcopal priest, husband to Bryna, father to Benedict and Zachary, and \x34master\x34 to Delilah (about 50 in dog years). Since 2009 I've been the rector of the Episcopal Parish of St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, Mass. (on the South Shore of Boston). I've also served parishes in Maryland and New York. When I'm not tending to my parish, hanging out with my family, or writing, I can usually be found drinking good coffee -- not that drinking coffee and these other activities are mutually exclusive. I hope you'll visit my website at www.frtim.com to find out more about me, read some excerpts from my book \x34What Size are God's Shoes: Kids, Chaos & the Spiritual Life\x34 (Morehouse, 2008), and check out some recent sermons.

As genealogists, it isn’t terribly uncommon for us to come across coincidences somewhere along our family lines, or even confluences of one of our lines with the line of a good friend or maybe even our spouse. Occasionally, we even find someone who is related to us somewhere down our line in an unexpected place – like the Midwest Genealogy Center!







However, the coincidences and confluences of lines are nothing less than remarkable in the story that Jack Bender will present here on Thursday, June 27. Civil War Soldiers Write Home is Jack’s tale, and it began at an auction he never planned to attend. Jack purchased a box of letters that were written by soldiers from Allen County, Kansas. His research carried him to Humboldt, Kansas to look for a cemetery named in the letters. Eventually, he rediscovered old friends through information obtained in the letters as well as connecting those friends to some of their kin revealed through the letters.







Children from age thirteen on up through adults will find Jack Bender’s tale fascinating. Please join us for Civil War Soldiers Write Home on Thursday, June 27 at 7:00 p.m. This presentation is free, however, registration is required.
