A Day with the Experts  (Programs)
9:00 am to 3:00 pm
PLCH Main Library - 3rd Floor
On Saturday, October 4, HCGS will be co-sponsoring the annual “Day with the 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. As the date gets closer, look for more information through our website and social media.

Saturday, October 25
Heritage Luncheon  (Seminar)
Clovernook Country Club
On Saturday, October 25, we will hold our annual Heritage Luncheon at the Clovernook Country Club. It is at this time that we introduce and welcome new members to our three lineage groups:  First Families, Settlers and Builders, and Century Families. (Information as to time, location, cost and the bio of our guest speaker, will be found in the September Tracer).
Our guest speaker this year is Wendy Hart Beckman. She just published a new book entitled Founders and Famous Families of Cincinnati. One of her biggest challenges was deciding which Cincinnati Families to include. Each featured family made a contribution in more than one area (i.e. education and philanthropy) and had an impact on the area in more than one area. As someone who has had the pleasure of hearing Ms. Beckman speak, I know we are in for a treat. Please send in your reservation by October 18. More information about the three lineage groups can be accessed on our website: http://www.hcgsohio.org/cpage.php?pt=55.
