Living History for All Ages
I am sending this reminder about an event LCC-OGS is sponsoring on Saturday May 16th.
The event is called "Living History for All Ages" and will focus on how genealogy relates to
history and on providing information about different societies that support both history and genealogy.
(Click here to see the flyer.)

Whether your ancestors are from the north, south, east or west, farmers, shoemakers, businessmen,
doctors , pastors, soldiers, sailors, or slaves, this presentation is open to all groups, any age, male or female and offers the perfect opportunity to find out about each one of these Societies and how you can honor your ancestors and
experience history as we journey through time. There will be displays to view and membership applications available. Date: Saturday, May 16, 2015 Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm Place: North Ridgeville Library, 35700 Bainbridge Road, North Ridgeville, Ohio 44039 Hosted by the Lorain County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society and presenting the speakers listed below: President of Lorain County Chapter Genealogical Society-OGS Peter Hritsko narrator President of Ohio Genealogical Society and Past President of LCC-OGS Margaret Cheney Sons of the American Revolution Firelands Bicentennial Chapter Shaun Cotterill Chapter Chaplin Daughters of the American Revolution, War of 1812, Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic,
