Brown Bag Talk Sept 21

I’ve been invited to speak on genealogy by the Friends of the Navarre Library on the 21st. My friends on the friends’ board suggested some local genealogy and history as the topic. So  I chose the “founder” of Navarre, Guy H. Wyman. It’s been a fascinating two weeks of research!

I’ve found locally written and published books, talked to people who have lived here ‘forever’ and searched everything from the BLM GLO to FamilySearch and NPL’s online genealogy resources.

Just a few interesting tidbits:

  • Wyman married first a woman from France, and second a woman from Pensacola, whose family originated in Italy.
  • His father bought land from Robert Oglesby, who got the original land patent.
  • His parents were murdered while Col. Wyman was serving in the Phillippines.

It’s going to be a fun talk!
