Learning about Military Records Is Focus of the OGS Fall Seminar on Oct. 3

There is still time to register for the Ohio Genealogical Society Fall Conference on military records on Saturday, Oct. 3. The society has lined up three speakers who know their subjects well. I have heard them speak before.

Eric Johnson, Lois Lambert, and Marjorie Waterfield will be the keynote speakers at the Ohio Genealogical Society’s Fall Seminar on “Researching Military Records in Ohio”. Visitors are welcome to join the group at the Kehoe Center for Advanced Learning at North Central State College, Shelby Campus, on Saturday, October 3rd.

Eric Johnson, an expert on the War of 1812 in Ohio, is a major contributor of articles on the subject to several Ohio publications.

Lois Lambert has won numerous awards on her Civil War regimental histories – on the 33rd OVI and the 91st OVI.

Marjorie Waterfield is a colorful speaker and author on many topics and will be addressing the group on researching soldiers of the Spanish American War along with World Wars I and II.

Sessions begin at 9:30 AM and last all day with a post-conference reception at the Ohio Genealogical Society Library in Mansfield from 4:00-8:00 PM. Registration for the event is $35.00 for non-members ($30.00 for OGS members paying by Oct. 1st). Reservations may be made by calling OGS at 419-756-7294, online at www.ogs.org/fallseminar.php, or by sending payment to the Ohio Genealogical Society, 713 S Main St, Mansfield OH 44907.
