    1. [OH-WAYNE-OGS] Wayne County, Ohio Genealogical Society Meeting, Etc.
    2. Cheryl Brown Abernathy
    3. Good afternoon all, I know you haven't heard from this list for a while, but we're trying to get the word out about our up-coming meeting at the end of the month. The first meeting of the year will be held on 29 January at 6:30 p.m. in the Wayne County Public Library. The title is: "Eureka! Or Not: Success Stories of Our Members" presented by Deb Kitko. Do you have an Eureka moment to share? If the library is closed that day because of winter weather, then we won't have a meeting. Check our Facebook page for the most current information. Also, it's time to renew your membership. If you haven't paid your dues yet, please do so. The first newsletter of the year will be coming out next month sometime. Thank you to those who have sent their dues in. Unfortunately, our website is down. It has been hosted on Rootsweb and Rootsweb and their parent company, Ancestry, found some security issues. Ours isn't the only one - any that are hosted by Rootsweb are down. Nothing that you need to be worried about, but they have shut down Rootsweb to rework some things. I hope they will be up again soon or the website may have to move to another host. We look forward to seeing you on the 29th.
