First Annual "No Show" BallThe Ohio Genealogical Society invites you to our First Annual No Show Ball. The proceeds from this event will go directly to the Building Fund to go towards paying off the current mortgage. As always, your contributions are greatly appreciated.
As you may have heard, the Ohio Genealogical Society is planning to Burn the Mortgage at the 2017 Conference at the end of April. We are very excited to close this chapter and open a new one!
We hope you have a great time at our No Show Ball!
