In addition to having a great Swiss genealogy & history library AND being within a 3-5 hour drive of significant Norwegian, Danish, Cornish, and Polish genealogy research centers, New Glarus, Wisconsin also turned out to be a (relative) hotbed of Manx genealogy. The North American Manx Association is active here and their web site is advertising Hotel 1620 at Plymouth, MA as the site of their 2020 Annual Convention, August 7-9, 2020. If you are a Standish descendant, you know that he was a Manxman, which makes you eligible to join and take part in the celebration. The event is on top of the GSMD's triennial Congress festivity the following month, in September. The Society of Myles Standish Descendants meets on a biennial basis, and their next event is not until 2021, unfortunately. So, if you can't make it to Plymouth, MA in September and are lucky enough to be a Standish descendant, you can still have a great time celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrim's landing with the Manx cats of the NAMA (pun intended.) If you are interested, this group also has an active facebook page. (Not sure if you have any ancestors from the Isle of Man? NAMA has a list of Manx surnames here. You don't have to be a Standish descendant to join.)
