For the safety of all of our volunteers, the Logan County History Center

the History Center and the Genealogical Society
will also be closed. You can check the status of the school closings

Thank you for your continued support,
It is with a very heavy heart that I announce the passing of the husband of one of our dedicated volunteers. Judy Snyder has been with the Genealogical society for many years. She may have even assisted many of you with your family research. Judy's husband put up a good fight, but his body just gave up and he passed away
Jan. 29 2018.
