Talking Genealogy in Northern Ohio
Posted by Diane
I had a chance to interview Ian Frazier,
author of the book Family
(Picador, $16) Thursday evening before the Ohio Genealogical Society
Conference started up in Huron (on Lake Erie midway between Cleveland and Toledo).
Frazier was the speaker at the society’s golden anniversary

small towns in the Western Reserve to his own childhood in the northern Ohio
town of Hudson. His incredibly detailed research comes across in the book, so I
asked him how he organized it all and decided what to keep and what to leave
out. You’ll see his answers in an upcoming Family Tree Magazine.
I snapped a picture of the banquet:
