Monthly Meeting – April 14th at 7:00 PM

The Lee County Genealogical Society will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, April 14th at 7:00 PM in the dining room of The Loveland Community House & Museum in Dixon. This month’s program will be presented by a special friend of the LCGS President, Jed Henry from Madison Wisconsin. Jed is an independent videographer/filmmaker who started a project to honor his grandfather’s memory and those who served with him in the 3rd Armored Division during WWII. The project soon morphed into a complete investigation to an incident on Aug. 13th 1944 that resulted in, an exhumation of a WWII soldier, PFC Lawrence Gordon, DNA testing, and the conclusion that resulted in an identification of a soldier previously thought unidentifiable by the US. This is a riveting story of how a team of individuals can overcome the obstacles put forth by time, faulty investigations, lack of cooperation from the U. S. accounting community

Refreshments will be served and there is no fee. The dining room is handicapped accessible and there will be staff in the lobby to direct you. For more information, please call The Family Tree Center, 111 Hennepin Ave. at 815/288-6702 or email us at Leecountygenealogicalsociety@gmail.com
