The Global Family Reunion is coming to the Western Reserve Historical Society <www.wrhs.org> on 6 Jun 2015.
Ann Sindelar of the Society received notice yesterday (25 Mar 2015) that the organization has been accepted as a remote site for the Global Family Reunion, GFR for short. The main event, which is expected to draw thousands, will be celebrated in New York City at the Science Pavilion on the grounds of the legendary 1964 World Fair. For details about GFR, go to http://globalfamilyreunion.com/.
A number of sites around the country and the world associated with family history and genealogy are signed up for remote GFR renions on the same day. Notable among them are:
Family History Library
Salt Lake City, Utah
Allen County Public Library
Ft Wayne, Indiana
Midwest Genealogy Center
Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research / Houston Public Library (Free of charge)
WRHS will provide family history-oriented activities for visitors with the assistance of the Genealogical Committee, an auxiliary of the Society <http://www.wrhs.org/research/library/genealogy/genealogical-committee/>. Among the highlights for families attending will be riding the recently restored Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel <http://www.wrhs.org/explore/exhibits/euclid-beach-park-grand-carousel/> and touring the World in Motion displays of antique cars <http://www.wrhs.org/research/crawford/>of Cleveland and beyond.
