Re-Opening of the Family History Center, Bosworth Place
Doris Ludwick
May 27, 2021
I am happy to announce that the LDS Family History Center, at 5505 Bosworth Place, Norwood, Ohio 45212, will re-open officially on the first Tuesday in June [June 1].
 
Our schedule and workers have been slightly changed. And several of our most faithful workers will not be with us now.  For instance one of our German experts will no longer be here physically. But he has agreed to be on-call on our Thursday night shifts.
 
AT LEAST FOR JUNE, MASKS ARE REQUIRED. 
The church that sponsors us requires it. So for now, every person in the Family History Center, vaccinated or not,  must wear a mask.
 
THE FOLLOWING SCHEDULE SHOWS WHEN WE WILL BE OPEN:
Tuesdays and Saturdays:          10 AM - 1:30
Wednesdays and Thursdays:      6 - 8:30 PM 
  
OUR WORKERS WILL ALSO BE HERE FOR 1/2 HOUR AFTER EVERY 
SHIFT, to do the extra cleaning and disinfecting that we need to do, to follow our new Protocols.
 
If you want to add us to your schedule, or print any of this announcement, that would be most appreciated.
 
Thank you very much,
Doris M Ludwick
