On Saturday, October 4, HCGS will be co-sponsoring the annual “Day with Genealogy Experts.” This year’s topic will feature the contributions of the Quakers to this region. In addition to the chance to tour the Genealogy and Local History Department, two speakers are scheduled during the day. At 11:00 AM, Dr. Diane Van Skiver Gagel, Past President of OGS, will be discussing “The Inner Light: Researching Our Quaker Ancestors.” Dr. Robert Wimberg, a popular local historian and Adjunct Professor at Wilmington College will discuss “The Quakers of Cincinnati and Their Contributions” at 2:00 PM.
As usual, a variety of “experts” from around the area will have tables set up that you will be able to visit between 12:00 and 2:00. This has been a very popular program in year’s past, and this year should be no exception.
You may also want to mark your calendar for the annual Genealogy Lock-In at the Main Library. It will be held on Saturday, October 25th from 6:30 - 11:30 PM. Space is limited and a reservation is required. You may reserve a spot at this link. Submitted by: Kathy Reed
