Relatively Speaking...

As some of you may remember back in May Mark & I went on a weeks trip to Pennsylvania to research. Along the way we did some research in various area's. One of those was the Medina County Public library.

A very nice library indeed - the newly remodeled library has a much updated genealogy room which I like very much!

A bounty of resource materials awaits you as you step inside. Yearbooks, family history books, newspapers & much more. One of the best finds we found there was a simple little book - actually a yearbook or directory if you will.

We genealogists use city directories alot, but I don't hear much said about church directories.
The one pictured at the top of this blog is from the Saint Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church. It was a gold mine of materials. Everything from births, deaths, addresses and a biggie - family portraits.

A great find indeed!

Relatively Speaking Monday - you'll want to check out Anne & Carol's blogs for their take on Relatively Speaking! I'm sure you'll be glad you did!

Happy Researching!

I've only seen one and that is from the last church we belonged to.

This library had quite a few and I was suprised at that. They can be hard to find but when you find them they are a gold mine!
