Thursday, February 9
Monthly General Membership Meeting
7:00 pm
Online meeting via Zoom
Program: Faith Of Our Fathers
Our country is one of religious diversity. Except for the very early days in the colonies, there has never been a "state religion". A number of different religions and their beginnings will be discussed. Before state and vital records were mandated, churches were valuable information that can be used as substitutes for vital records.
 
Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, AG, FOGS, has an amazing ability to bring laughter into the lives of her audience members.  One of her favorite photos is a picture of her mother on her way to a church picnic, then on to an afternoon of cemetery transcribing.  It was taken just four days before Peggy was born!
Having grown up with parents that were deeply involved in genealogy takes her love of family history to a new level.  Some people are amazed that she knew people that were actually born in the 1800’s; her own grandparents.  Listening to the stories from bygone years, touching the fabrics from quilts, dresses, blessing gowns, and bonnets all have added to the admiration of previous generations. 
Peggy is a frequent lecturer at many local societies in Ohio, as well as Family History seminars.  She has presented at Brigham Young University, and ICAPGen, and taught Continuing Education classes at several community colleges and The Ohio State University.  One of her proudest moments was achieving the credentials that qualified her to be an Accredited Genealogist, for it polished her research skills.
She is a featured columnist in Reminisce magazine, has written several Legacy QuickGuides, and has filmed as an instructor for Ancestry Academy, and worked as a researcher for Ancestry ProGenealogists.  She was recognized for her work by being award the title of Fellow of the Ohio Genealogical Society in 2018, as well as receiving the Laura G. Prescott Award for Exemplary Service in Genealogy.
