Contacting the Edd Presnell family

Postby MZD » Thu Apr 26, 2018 1:03 pm

Over 15 years ago I bought the concert model dulcimer by Edd Presnell. At that time I was able to contact his granddaughter to get info in the instrument. I'm wanting to contact her again, but her email address has changed. I've heard she is a member of this forum and I'm hoping someone can put me in touch with her. The name I had for the granddaughter then was Susy, I believe. If there is a museum with his works, I'd like to know that, too. Thanks.

If you are on Facebook, search for Edd Presnell family. His granddaughter maintains a page where she posts photos of Edd, Nettie, other family members, and dulcimers. I have contacted her through using Facebook Messenger.

It's actually Edd Nettie Presnell, in case you have trouble finding it.

I found it. Does the grand daughter ever give her own name?

Melanie is the grand-daughter's name. I'm working with her in hopes of creating a biography of Edd and Nettie. Melanie has medical issues and may not respond immediately as she has her good days and her not so good days. She would love to have a current photo of your Edd dulcimer along with it's number!
