The Portage County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society will meet Saturday, April 2, 2016 at the Portage County Historical Society at 10 a.m. The society is located at 6549 N. Chestnut St., Ravenna, next to the Ravenna High School.

Joe Stamm will present “A Tale of Two Cities (i.e. Towns).” The presentation will cover the early 1800s migration of settlers from Cornwall in northwestern Connecticut to Nelson, Ohio, in Portage County. Many current families in Portage County owe their Ohio residence to these early pioneers from Connecticut.

The program is free and open to anyone interested in genealogy or local history. A fourteen-page newsletter is published bimonthly for members. It contains an assortment of genealogy material relating to Portage County residents, some dating back to 1808.
