  5. Afternoon with the Author: Amy Whorf McGuiggan presents Finding Emma

    November 16, 2019, 3:00 PM - 4:45 PM @ Whiton Room

    Hingham resident, Amy Whorf McGuiggan, author of My Provincetown: Memories of a Cape Cod Childhood and Take Me Out to the Ball Game: The Story of the Sensational Baseball Song, will talk about her new book, Finding Emma: My Search for the Family My Grandfather Never Knew and the discoveries she made about her maternal grandfather’s family and ancestry.

    Family members had always been told and willingly believed that John Joseph Osborne had grown up an orphan and an only child. Six years of painstaking research uncovered a different truth. Amy will ponder the question of whether learning and knowing something that was previously unknown – and that one has gone through life blissfully unaware of – matters.

    Anyone who is researching their own family tree is encouraged to attend and share their personal journey.

    Copies of Finding Emma will be available for purchase.
