More Third Coast genealogy

In the April-June issue of NGS Newsmagazine, Debra Mieszala, CG, of Lake County, Illinois, describes records of the Coast Guard predecessor United States Life-Saving Service (USLSS), begun in the 1870s. If you have a research target involved, these records are a treat -- everything from logbooks to correspondence to "articles of engagement." And check out the list of articles for further study.

I am looking for descendants of men who served the lighthouse(s) at Cleveland, Ohio, in hopes of finding pictures and anecdotes about their
service.

Many men moved around from one to another lighthouse on the Great Lakes and some served in the Life Saving Service before/after working for
U.S. Light House Service.
