Upcoming Lucas County OGS meeting

Please plan on attending this Saturday's meeting of the Lucas County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society. Saturday's temperature should be the warmest day we have had recently. A great time to come out and meet with your genealogy friends. The meeting will be held in the Huntington Meeting Room, located on the first floor, at 2:00 p.m. at the Main Branch of the Toledo-Lucas County Library. The library is located at 325 North Michigan Street, Toledo, Ohio.

William J Priest will be sharing “Planning a Successful Genealogy Research Trip”

Completing a successful genealogy research trip is not hard to accomplish with a little planning and the right equipment. Tips will be given on navigating library, archive, genealogy society and cemetery websites to lay a firm foundation to build on the details of the research trip. After laying the foundation, tips will then be given on what electronic equipment to take along, and why each is important. (Laptop, scanner, digital camera, flash drives, batteries, etc.) Then tips will be given on packing, transporting, and securing these items in automobiles or airplanes, research facilities and hotel rooms. Additionally, tips for getting through airport security will be given. A handout will be provided.
