As the Young Historians Society enters its second full year of programming, we find that school and other commitments are making it hard for everyone to attend events on weekday afternoons. It is also becoming harder to find historic sites and programming available at this time.

To that end, we are asking you, our Young Historians, if it is time for a change? Would it be better for us to schedule programs later in the morning or early afternoon on Saturdays? Is there a better day or time that works for the majority? We would also love to hear your suggestions for future programs. What museums or sites would you like to visit? Are there speakers you would be interested in hearing?

As we have said from the start, this group is all about you, and we want to make sure that everyone is getting the most out of it. So please let us know what you think in the comments below or by emailing us at

I agree that it's difficult to attend a lot of the weekday meetings-and Saturday meetings in the morning or early afternoon would be awesome!!

I'd love to go to the Theodore Roosevelt house (I know that it's currenebtly closed for renovations, but maybe a tour could be rescheduled once it re-opens?). I'd also be interesting to go to the Holocaust memorial center, but I know that isn't really Long Island history.

My son is a budding history buff (this summer we went to North Carolina and Gettysburg for Civil War reenactments and tours) but the Thursday afternoon meetings have always conflicted with school clubs, so he has never attended. Saturdays may be better. thanks.
