“Kickin’ Back: 1850-1950″
presented by Cynthia Smith
What did our ancestors do for fun when the day’s work was finally done?
They didn’t have iPhones, video games, Facebook, color TV or air and space travel.
Cynthia will give us a look back at how our ancestors spent their leisure time
and experienced fun in the years between 1850-1950.
Cynthia began her interest in genealogy while studying at John Carroll University.
After receiving her degree in Religious Studies from JCU, she went on to complete a
Masters program in Social Work at Case Western Reserve University.
With the help of family input, conferences and workshops Cynthia has made significant progress in tracing the Smith, Magyar, Jirka and Novak family lines.
Cynthia is employed full time as a Social Worker who enjoys travel, the Monkees,
her family, her dog, Gracie, as well as being an avid researcher.
She is president of the Brooklyn Genealogical Society
as well as a member of the Czechoslovakian Genealogical Internet Group
and the Ohio Genealogical Society.
