FREMONT ROSS STUDENTS RESEARCH FAMILY VETERANS

Toledo Blade: Fremont Ross Students

Students of Fremont Ross History teacher Mike Gilbert learned about the service and sacrifice of America's veterans through historical research and interviews with their own family members. Click on the link above to read the front page Toledo Blade article featuring the Veterans' Project. Students' research was donated to the Hayes Presidential Center and is now part of the Local History Collection . Selected veterans' interviews from 2005 through 2007 can be viewed online.

GENEALOGISTS REQUEST WOOD COUNTY PROBATE FILES

Genealogists around the country are already requesting photocopies of Wood County probate case files donated to the Hayes Presidential Center. Thanks to the hard work of Wood County Records Manager Brenda Ransom, her staff, and dedicated Hayes Center volunteer Dorothy Wagner, more than 3/4 of the 5,000 case files (through 1908) are processed and available to researchers at the Hayes Presidential Center or by request through the Online Hayes Obituary Index . The next several months will see the arrival of the remaining files (through 1922).

LOCAL NEWSPAPERS INDEXED FOR CIVIL WAR ARTICLES

Check the Hayes Center's Civil War Research Page for links to new sources. Included is the work of our volunteers who have indexed letters, by and articles and reports about local Civil War soldiers and their regiments that appeared in the Fremont Journal, Sandusky Register, and the Norwalk Reflector from 1861 to 1865. Organized by regiment, the index provides the date of the newspaper, if the item is a letter, report, or article and a brief subject note. Also indexed are homefront articles by local editors in Sandusky, Erie, and Huron Counties of Ohio. All issues are available for research at the Hayes Presidential Center. Click on the image to access links to all three newspapers.

PATTERNS OF THE PAST: QUILTS OF NORTHERN OHIO

Patterns from the Past: Quilts of Northern OhioIf you're planning a visit to the Hayes Presidential Center this summer, take the opportunity to see Patterns from the Past: Quilts of Northern Ohio. More than 130 people were in attendance for the June 17th opening reception. Patterns from the Past features 30 vintage quilts displayed in the Museum and the Hayes Home. Created by 19th-century women who settled in Northern Ohio, the quilts are subtle reminders of the cultures and deeply held values of the diverse groups who made Northern Ohio their home. Rich in color and detail, the quilts are a reflection of the women and the communities that would shape the future of Northern Ohio. Read more about the exhibit on Ohio's Yesterdays blog.
