This message was recently received from Richard L. Herrick with the request to pass it on.
So to the readers of the New UNYG Blog, here it is:
ALBANY, NEW YORK, AUGUST 31, 2009:
The Herrick Family Association (HFA) is pleased to announce that the Herrick Family Association Annual meeting is being held September 23 to September 27, 2009, in Albany, New York. Richard L. Herrick, President of the HFA and compiler of the third edition of the Herrick Genealogical Register (HGR) will be available to consult with anyone interested in their Herrick family connection.
Mr. Herrick graduated from Michigan State University with a B.S.M.E and later became interested in genealogy in the early 1960s. After retirement in 1994 Mr. Herrick began in earnest to update the 1846 & 1885 editions of the Herrick Genealogical Register [HGR] which now has a database of 50,000 individuals for Herrick’s and allied families connected to the Herrick family.
Volume I of HGR3 was published in 2008; Volume II in 2009 and Volume III will be published in 2010. Publishing the HGR3 is a team effort of Richard L. Herrick, Kenneth Roy Herrick, Sharon Herrick, Joann Nichols and Dale!

The Herrick Family Association is a national non-profit organization formed in 2001 to provide a central focus for family tree information for all individuals with an ancestor or spouse named Herrick and those who descended from Henry Herrick who arrived in Salem, MA from England during July 1629. The Herrick Family Association also supports a DNA project and genealogy research ongoing in several countries.
The meetings will be held at the Hampton Inn & Suites-Albany, located at 25 Chapel St., Albany, NY 12210. Further information on reservations and activities at: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~herrick
