Thanks to Julia O’Hara, the 3rd edition of “Resources for Lyme Genealogy and History” is now printed (6/12). During the summer, many people visit, looking for their Lyme roots. Information is at the Town Office, the Academy Building (The Historians), and the Library. This pamphlet explains who has what and, thanks to David Robbins, Zoning Administrator, has a description and map of the seven Lyme cemeteries.
