Let's Do This Again!

The Society is going to sponsor another Who Do You Think You Are raffles.  Buy your ticket now through June 2nd and you may win research and a presentation on your family on October 6, 2015.

Skeleton or Patriot - Who Do You Have in Your Closet?

 

Have you watched those TV shows like Who Do You Think You Are and wondered what could be found on your family? Now is your chance to get local family history experts to research your genealogy and it may only cost you $5.00! 

The Seneca County Genealogical Society is holding a raffle, selling tickets for a chance to have our special committee research your genealogy and present their findings. The drawing will be held at our June 2nd, 2015 meeting.

One year Jane Wagner of Fostoria won the raffle and the Society presented her "Who Do You Think You Are Seneca County" program.  Becky Hill and Steve Frank of Tiffin and Ronald Gase of the Netherlands, along with other Society members pulled together stories and facts on Jane's family which included a War of 1812 spy, tailors, fruit farmers, grocers, , cartoonists, sailors, Indian traders, trappers, Civil War soldiers, World War I soldiers and  balloonists!

The lucky winner will be presented with a PowerPoint presentation of our researchers' findings along with a binder containing the data, photos and various stories that they uncovered.

Although the winning subject will not be flown to different parts of the U.S. or Europe to examine their roots, the trip to their past will be a virtual one presented at our October 6th meeting at the Tiffin Seneca Public Library.

Raffle tickets can be purchased from any genealogical society member or you can contact Jerry or  Bev Wheatley at 419-447-9628 or jerbev47@att.net. Or buy your tickets at any of our upcoming meetings at the Library:  April 7th or May 5th. 

Tickets are $5.00 each; or 6 for $25.00; or 10 for $40.00. All proceeds go to the non-profit Society and will be used to promote genealogy in Seneca County. In the past, the raffle has made it possible to donate funds to the Tiffin Seneca Public Library for HeritageQuest.com, a genealogical website that all Seneca County residents can access for free through the Library's website.  For further details contact Becky Hill at rhill7@woh.rr.com

JANUARY 2015  UPDATE!!!

ATTENTION MEMBERS: In order to keep our newsletter in print, we have discussed several options and possibilities.  We would like to have 4 or more people help with this task, by having them each write one or two pages, once each quarter.  We feel this would be less of a burden put all on one person.  If you would like to help us with this task, please email Becky Hill OR Dustin Austin for more information. Thank You!!!
