In order to set up seating and provide enough handouts, we do ask that visitors register in advance even for the free classes. Call 419-886-1903 to register or send an email to Tom Neel – firstname.lastname@example.org – with your summer class plans at the Ohio Genealogical Society library. Visitors may stay and research at the library after the classes without the usual library admittance fee. We do expect you to make a lot of photocopies and even drop a donation in the basket if you have good research luck! We are a non-profit after all, but we find that these FREE summer classes bring many new faces to our organization. Please enjoy a Summer of Learning!
