Maritime Saturday

Join us for mug-up and
help with our
“Michigan Bears Genealogy Discovery Campaign”

Are you related to the group of men who brought
the gill net fishing industry to Gloucester, MA
from Charlevoix, MI
in 1910 and the following years?

We are looking for descendants of the Arnolds, Lasleys, Jones, Places, Dahlmers, Lafonds, Tysvers and other “Michigan Bears”.                       
Please help us piece together this enormous list of people who can trace their lines back to these men and their vessels,
and to tell their stories!

If you have the app, please take the half of millisecond to give it a nice rating if you feel it’s worthy.  Thanks, Joey

Also thanks to James Eves from Cape Ann Giclee and Bill O’Connor from North Shore Kid who helped me out big time with a few much needed image files.

Fun Shopping at the Magnolia Farmer’s Market

The Magnolia Farmer’s Market takes place every Monday from 4 – 7 on Lexington Avenue. When shopping at the Farmer’s Market take a look at the Lexicon Gallery, Cape Ann Auction, Magnolia’s Children’s shop and the other stores on the upcoming Lexington Avenue.


It doesn’t get any sweeter than this and just look at those huge hunks of fresh lobster meat. Get yourself on over to Passports Restaurant on Main Street!
