OGS Conference 2016

The Clermont County Genealogical Society was happy to attend the 2016 OGS Conference held in southwest Ohio this year at the nearby Great Wolf Lodge in Mason, OH. Thanks to the many volunteers we were able to staff an exhibit booth and share some Clermont County genealogy with the attendees.

Heritage Day 2015

Our annual Heritage Day conference was held on Saturday, September 12, 2015 at RSVP at Wards Corner.  Nettie Ferguson of Columbus, OH discussed how learning more about the faith of her ancestors led her to search for records of the African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church in Felicity, Ohio.

Everyone had a great time!  If you didn't join us this year, be sure to look for 2016 registration forms coming this summer.  In the meantime, can you prove one of your ancestors for one of lineage societies?  (Thanks to member Todd Smythe for providing pictures!)
