Sandusky History

The Sandusky History blog is "inspired by the collections of the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center and Follett House Museum," and produced by the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center. Recent posts have covered a Feb. 9 appearance (woops! that's tomorrow!) by the distinguished genealogist and lecturer Tony Burroughs of Chicago State University; an 1830s autograph album belonging to Marcia Coburn Vinton of Massachusetts, whose daughter was a pioneer Sandusky settler; the 1924 life story of former slave Sophronia Jefferson; and the tradition of Leap Year parties. Thanks to Dorene Paul for alerting me to this one, as my forebears seem to have skipped that part of Ohio.
