    Independence Civic Center – Willow Room - Independence OH 44131   (Directions)

    “As It So Happened: The Naturalization of John J. Hanson”

    A case study presented by our own Jane Gramlich

    As genealogists we know that research is full of all sorts of twists and turns,
    and so often we make many mistakes along the way. Jane’s case study takes
    us through a real, very messy research process which ultimately proved
    successful in finding and identifying an ancestor’s naturalization record.

    Holding master’s degrees in history and library science from Kent State University,
    Jane is a genealogy and local history librarian in the Special Collections Division
    for the Akron-Summit County Public Library. Additionally she has written three
    award-winning articles for the Ohio Genealogical Society publications.

    “Jewish Songwriters and their Immigrant Experience”

    Join us as we celebrate our 35th Anniversary
    with this very special presentation by Bill Rudman

    The creation of American musicals virtually belongs to Jewish-American
    composers and lyricists. From Berlin, Gershwin and Hammerstein, to Bernstein,
    Bock and Sondheim . . . hear the marvelous story of what they did and
    how they did it as Mr. Rudman translates his personal passion for the classical
    American song to open up the riches of our cultural heritage.

    In 2000 Bill Rudman formed the Cleveland-based nonprofit
    The Musical Theater Project” (TMTP), which produces educational programming
    for all ages and fosters a deeper appreciation and understanding of the American
    musical theater. One of TMTP’s most familiar works is the nationally syndicated
    radio program “Footlight Parade” which airs on Cleveland’s WCLV-FM.

    The celebration begins at 6PM with a potluck dinner and some very special memories.

    Independence Civic Center – Willow Room - Independence OH 44131   (Directions)

    Chris Staats presents
    “Using Deeds for Genealogical Research”

    Beyond researching birth, marriage and death records,
    we can find much valuable information for genealogical research in the
    property records of our ancestors. Chris will give us his insights
    on this topic to add another tool to our personal efforts.

    As a genealogical researcher, writer and presenter, Chris has written articles for
    ‘Family Tree’ magazine, Association of Professional Genealogists ‘Quarterly’ and others. He is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists,
