DE­TAILS: The group will host a talk by Audrey Klinken­berg, town of Sauger­ties his­to­rian.

Writ­ten be­tween 1882 and 1914, these diaries il­lu­mi­nate Brink’s life as a Sauger­ties towns­man, farmer and in­sur­ance agent and por­tray a per­sonal and rare view of these times in gen­eral — and these times in Sauger­ties in par­tic­u­lar. In ad­di­tion to be­ing the town his­to­rian, Klinken­berg is the deputy Ul­ster County his­to­rian, pres­i­dent of the Ul­ster County Ge­nealog­i­cal So­ci­ety and reg­is­trar of the Wiltwyck Chap­ter of the Daugh­ters of the Amer­i­can Rev­o­lu­tion. The talk is free and open to the public.
