Skeleton or Patriot - Who Do You Have in
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 4th,
2013 meeting. Last 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, sailors, Indian traders, trappers, Civil War
soldiers, World War I soldiers, cartoonists 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 1st 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 email@example.com. Or buy your tickets at any of our upcoming meetings at the Library.
Tickets are $5.00 each; or 6 for $25.00; or 10 for $40.00. Click here for tickets: SCGS raffle tickets2013.pdf
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.
