Mercer County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society
The Mercer County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society will meet Sunday, May 6th at 2:00 pm at the Richardson Bretz Building 119 West Fulton St., Celina. As always, the meetings are open to the public. We would love to have you join us.
Guest Speaker: Bob Evers is a St. Henry native who attended the Universities of Dayton and Notre Dame and then settled in the Dayton area where he worked as a chemist at the Air Force Research Laboratory. He’s had a continuing interest in local genealogy and history and has previously spoken at area genealogy meetings.
His topic will be: Lange Family Journey to St. Henry. The Lange families that settled east of St. Henry about 1850 produced numerous descendants who married into other local families and became part of the area’s history. This talk will focus upon the Lange family origin at Goldenstedt within the Grand Duchy of Oldenburg in Germany, the family members’ piecemeal immigration to Cincinnati, and their final migration to the St. Henry area. In addition to identifying the individual Lange immigrants and their descendants, the presentation will give a brief history of the family at Goldenstedt as well as the immigrants’ living circumstances in Cincinnati and St. Henry.
