As a relative newcomer in town and on the SAHS Board, my family tree isn't even in the picture. Still, as an historian I value the work of the SAHS and the Sylvania Historical Village, which preserves our past for future generations.
Mimi Malcolm, a teacher and skillful geneologist, has been writing a column for the Sylvania Advantage that presents different aspects of our fascinating community history from the beginning. An incredible history detective, Mimi says "I can find just about anyone, anywhere." "Women, too?" I ask. "Yep, women, too!" She will be conducting a Geneology Workshop on November 16, 1-4 pm at the Historical Society Museum on Main Street. Mark your calendars now! Family history is community history, and that makes up American History.
