Vosburgh, blacksmith and machinist of Beamsville who is accredited with creating the modern hockey net.

 

Her topic, in her own words, “..I will probably be speaking on some of the additional information I have gleaned over the years about my great, great, grandfather and his family, as an example of how Archives can provide a lot more details about people’s lives beyond birth, marriages and death..”
