Heritage Luncheon and Lock-In
You only have until October 18 to make a reservation for the 2014 Heritage Luncheon. New members of the three lineage groups: First Families, Settlers and Builders and Century Families will be inducted. It will be held at the Clovernook Country Club. RSVP by October 18 using this registration form.
Our guest speaker this year will be Wendy Hart Beckman, author of Founders and Famous Families of Cincinnati. Among the topics Ms. Beckman will discuss will be the trials, tribulations and triumphs of researching Cincinnati's earliest families. She will discuss some of the pitfalls she ran into including undocumented family trees, unvetted websites, and the necessity of finding original sources wherever possible.
I was hoping to give you a link to the library website so you could register for the lock-in scheduled for 6:30 to 11:30 PM at the Main Library on October 25th (same day as the Heritage Luncheon). The program also includes mini-tech programs in the adjoining computer lab. Unfortunately, the site says that the event is full. My suggestion -- call the Genealogy and Local History Department and ask to be put on a Waiting List. In the past they have invited everyone on the list. (513-369-6905).
