Bureau County Genealogical Society – October meeting @ Bureau County Genealogical Society library
Oct 23 @ 7:00 pm
The Thursday October 23 meeting of the Bureau County Genealogical Society will feature Ron Weitzel from the Peoria area.  Weitzel is a retired high school German teacher and has been deeply involved with German/American cultural projects.  In addition, he was coordinator of a German/American student exchange program for 20 years.

His program for the evening will be a slide presentation that will take the audience back in time as far as 1861.  He will make the area around where the counties of Bureau, Lee. and LaSalle meet come alive through recently discovered documents from the early days.  These documents consisting of school board minutes, financial records, attendance records, and grade books were discovered in the Weitzel farmhouse near the site of the former Hinkel School on the Old Chicago Road  slightly northwest of Mendota.  This area was settled by many German immigrants.  Through studying these records Weitzel has learned a lot about those early settlers which he will share.

The public is invited to this free program beginning at 7:00 pm at the Society library at 629 South Main in Princeton.   Those needing further information may contact the library at (815) 879-3133 or visit during the regular hours of 10 am to 3:00 pm Mon, Tues, Thurs, or Fri.
