Learn to make an heirloom for generations to come

ARCANUM--Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society will hold a membership meeting Nov. 8, 7 p.m.

The society’s own reference material coordinator, Annette Stewart, will be the guest speaker, sharing her own story of genealogy and family history and making them into an heirloom for generations to come. Learn from this presentation how to create and preserve your own heirloom to tell your future generations of your family history. Mrs. Stewart has researched ancestors that served in the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 as well as stories of local homesteads, cemeteries and long lost cousins.

During the evening there will be a tour of the reference library, exhibits of old family photos, scrapbooks from Annette’s personal collection, deeds and information on how to search your own home for history.

The society is preparing for the annual Christmas Bazaar to be held Nov. 24, with new hours this year, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. This year’s bazaar will feature themed rooms throughout the historical building for shopping. Look for Beck’s Boutique, Bake Shop and Country Store, Kids Treasures, and the Meeting Room which will be filled Christmas decorations galore! Find tall elegant decorated trees, wooden snowmen, stars, sleds and more. New features this year will be aprons, aprons and more aprons of every style and fabric and kids’ rocking horses. As usual, the society will keep their policy of low and affordable prices for all items. Watch for further information on the Bazaar as the time continues to grow near.
