Schenectady County turns 200

On Saturday, March 21, Jack McEneny, D-Albany, Assemblyman for the 104th Assembly District, will give a presentation on Irish genealogy. On Saturday, May 9, Kate Dudding, a professional story teller will tell a tale about the Eerie Canal and discuss how she uses historical research to build her characters and storylines.

"Storytelling isn't something that jumps out at people right away, but you can really take facts and create these amazing tales and realize that you're learning about the history of your own community," said Dudding.

In September there will be a guided walk of the historic Stockade neighborhood.

"It's really about interactive history " how can we make this relevant to people in Schenectady County now," said Weller.

"It's just going be a big party all year long," said Voelker.""
