Hamilton County Heritage Luncheon

The Hamilton County Genealogical Society will be hosting its Heritage Luncheon on Saturday, November 3rd, at the Clovernook Country Club.

As this is the 200th Anniversary of the War of 1812, our guest speaker, Craig Heimbuch, will enlighten us about this "Forgotten War" and its significance in the formation of Ohio. This event also allows Chapter members the opportunity to recognize members who have successfully proved that they have direct ancestors who lived in Cincinnati at least one hundred years ago.

Members who are eligible for one or more of these recognitions should consider applying. If your ancestor is eligible for one of the Lineage Groups, they would also be eligible for the corresponding group at the Ohio Genealogical Society. The deadline for submission to Hamilton County is August 31st, but applications to the state are not due until December 31st. Since the Ohio Genealogical Society Conference is scheduled for Cincinnati in April 2013, this would be a great year to submit your family for one or more of these recognitions.

A copy of the registration form can be downloaded from the Chapter Website by clicking on this link. Applications and instructions for the three lineage groups are available on the website.

Questions?  Post a question in the comment section below.  Members of the Lineage Group Committee are happy to offer advice, handholding and encouragement to members seeking assistance. Post your contact information below and a member will contact you.
