The 36th Annual Banquet of the Williams County genealogy Society was held on June 17. New members inducted into The First Families of Williams (FFWC) were: Gerald D. Boynton, Marilyn L. Vonalt, Chad Vonalt, Colleen Vonalt, Kyle Fisher, and Paul Boynton. The following were inducted into The Century Families of Williams County (CFWC) JoEllen Culbertson, Kathy K. James and Carolyn J. Harrington.
After the dinner, Roger Lash hosted a presentation of “Trash or Treasure.” Mr. Lash examined items members had brought in and gave a brief description of the history of the items as well as explaining what their approximate value would be today. Photographs of the inductees and WCGS Board members were taken by by Nicki Cogswell. The next meeting of the WCGS will be held on the second Monday in September.
The purpose of the WCGS is the preservation of county records and family research. Monthly meetings are held the second Monday of each month, excluding July and August, in the Harmon Room of the Local History Center of the Bryan Public Library on the square at 102 N. Main St., Bryan, OH.
