Genealogical resources at Akron-Summit County Public Library

If you were disappointed when Jane Gramlich’s presentation “Resources and Services in the Special Collections Division, Akron-Summit County Public Library (ASCPL)” was cancelled in April, you will be happy to know that Jane has been rescheduled for the Wednesday, July 17, meeting of Cuyahoga West Chapter, Ohio Genealogical Society (OGS).

Jane, a librarian in Special Collections at the ASCPL and vice president of Cuyahoga Valley Chapter, OGS will cover the genealogical and local history resources available including books, periodicals, databases, archival collections and digital collections. She will also discuss the other services provided such as classes and programs, research assistance, lookups and copies, and their newsletter, Past Pursuits.

While ASCPL’s collection is primarily focused on Ohio and the surrounding states, you should note that they hold materials for the states of the eastern seaboard, New England and the South.

The meeting will be held in the Porter Room of Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road. Program begins at 7:00 p.m. Social time, with refreshments, is from 6:30-7:00 p.m. The public is invited, free of charge. For more information, email
