As this year’s 2014-2015 Lakeside Heritage Society presentations to the Danbury 4th grade students wrapped up April 20, it was appropriate the last topic be on “Historical Peninsula Schools:  1882-1955.”  Today as we walk throughout the halls and classrooms at the Danbury School there are still pieces and parts of the original building built in 1923.  From the wood floors in classrooms on the 3rd floor to the holes in the floor used to anchor the desks, these are all small reminders of the early school history on the Peninsula.

By Linda Huber, LHS Board Member

While it is true that April showers bring May flowers, this year May brings a new event sponsored by the Lakeside Heritage Society (LHS).   Among the many other activities going on inside Lakeside Chautauqua this Memorial Day weekend, the LHS is having a Family History Day (FHD) on Saturday, May 23.   Genealogy is the theme for the day’s activities. There will be morning and afternoon speakers in Chautauqua Hall and two mid-day activities at the Archives Center.   For the morning presentation (10:30 to 12) Rebecca Hill from the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center will speak on the topic, “Genealogy 101” covering the basics of genealogy research.   At mid-day (12:30 to 1:45) at the Archives Center participants can choose one of two hands-on activities designed for children and adults:  create a family tree or learn about the Archive Center resources available on the history of a Lakeside cottage.  Finally, the afternoon session (2 to 3:30) has speaker Deb Shell from the Greater Cleveland Genealogy Society sharing her personal journey on “Unearthing My Family Roots.”   The fee payable at the door for an individual session is $5 per person/family.  To attend all the FHD activities, the fee is $10 per person/family.
