100th Anniversary Year for Hudson Library and Historical Society
concealed the computers in the rotunda, adding to the festive air. Photos of Hudson libraries past to present adorned the walls. Before dinner was served, the Reverend Brian Suntken conducted an auction of themed dinners. Ten delicious cakes by the Western Reserve School of Baking were marched in by special guests, one for each decade of the library's existence. Dinner, prepared by Hudson's Restaurant and Catering, was served on the patio, followed by dancing to the music of Nitebridge. Among the 165 guests were William Curran, Mayor of Hudson, and State Representative Mike Moran.
Many were the special events marking this important anniversary, but none more spectacular than the formal dinner held in the Library on September 11, 2010. Those who were able to attend were served cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as they arrived in the rotunda, while the Paul Stranahan Jazz Trio played. Six-foot George Solan, Nancy Brock, Marion and Will Else paper cakes

President’s Message At our planning meeting l a s t August, the H G S G B o a r d decided we should give more help to those who are just beginning in genealogy. Accordingly, we have instituted a mentoring program in the Hudson Library Archives. There are eight volunteers willing to give beginners a helping hand at using a computer to search for ancestors. All a beginning genealogist needs to do is contact the Hudson Library Archives at 330-653-6658, ext. 2017 and explain that he or she would like assistance with getting started. Our Archivist will give your name and phone number to a seasoned volunteer who will contact you to set up an appointment convenient for both of you. The results have been pleasing. New researchers leave feeling grateful and happy that they have made a good start and are encouraged to carry on, and the volunteer is glad to have been of help. As mentioned in a recent talk by the LDS Director Judy Porter, finding family from the past is as important as keeping track of current family before we lose them. If you are a beginning member, please don't hesitate to take advantage of this service.

Payment Due Upon Exit by Elsie M. Thomas Genealogists thrill when they happen upon the obituary of an ancestor. No wonder; there is a world of information to be found in them. They give details about not only the deceased, but also the survivors: who they were and sometimes where they lived at the time of the ancestor's death. Some of the names mentioned as survivors are the very ones you've been chasing for years, and now you've nailed them! I read in an online newsletter that nowadays some big city newspapers are charging unbelievably high fees, like $450.00, to run one of these notices, especially in the Los Angeles area. I decided to find out what is happening in our vicinity and was glad to learn that fees in this area are not nearly so high. Local newspapers differ in how they handle what I thought of as obituaries. Most of those we read are death notices. A staff member of the Cleveland Plain Dealer explained to me the difference. Death notices are written by either a family member or close friend who knew the deceased well enough to be able to describe attributes and hobbies, knows date of birth and death, parents, and often the mother's maiden name, siblings, children and grandchildren—all items of intense interest to the genealogist. The newspaper levies a charge for each line and extra for a photograph--$20 at the Plain Dealer, and what amounts to seven lines of text for a photo in the Akron Beacon Journal, closer to $30. If the scribe gets carried away and writes a really long
description, it can cost a sizeable sum. Usually a funeral director will help. Obituaries are biographies the editorial board decides to run about a person who has made a significant contribution to the community, or possibly to the nation, in one form or another. The family of the deceased is not asked to pay for these. If a photo of the deceased is available, it will be included. Sometimes these obituaries are written long before a celebrity has died, ready to publish with just a few minor adjustments when the person actually dies. Our local Hudson Hub-Times makes no charge at all, but accepts information only from the funeral director. He/she gets the information directly from the nearest kin, or in some cases, friend, thereby absolving the newspaper of the responsibility of ensuring accuracy of the information submitted. (Be aware that occasional mistakes are made by persons giving such information.) At the Akron Beacon Journal, if a death notice is to be run on a weekend, it costs a bit more per line than on a weekday. More people read newspapers on the weekend than through the working week, so the number of readers reached is much larger. In my own experience, I had been looking for anything I could find on a second cousin with whom I had lost touch. I knew she had lived in the vicinity of Reading, PA, but had no clue about where, or even exactly when she died, nor did I know her married surname. Information given from memory by a family member had her dying in the wrong decade. Then I stumbled upon the death notice of her !! 3
father, who had lived in a different town. It gave me the name of his daughter, her married name, and those of her children, plus her exact place of residence. I was able to go on from there and establish a relationship with the wife of her son, who gave me more information than I dreamed possible. It was a lucky find. Another time, I learned the city in which a cousin of my husband had died, looked up funeral homes in that area, took a stab at calling the first one listed and struck pay dirt! She was well known and highly admired in her community, and that particular funeral home was proud to have handled her services. Again, I was able to flesh out many details. So genealogists, keep searching for those death notices or obituaries. They are often the proverbial gold mine.

Writing Your Own Obit (Nancy Brock submitted this, having read it in a Woman's Day article from April 2008) Did you ever think of writing your own obituary yourself? Think about it. Save your family the stress at a naturally difficult time. You can point out your activities, highlights, education, hobbies and accomplishments. Name the place and date of your birth, and your parents' names. List your occupations, military career and family members. You can even pick a picture you want to include in the article. Maybe another article (shorter or longer) for a different paper. Let your children know your desires while you are still able. Besides, don't leave it up to them to make mistakes. Sit down and take 20 minutes to put your thoughts together, maybe make an outline, and later touch it up. Your family will be grateful.
Winter Researching Now that we've finally gathered all the leaves for disposal, it's a good time to make a run to the library and browse among the many genealogy books available to take home. The number to look for upstairs in the stacks is 929. You may happen upon a book that will give just the answer to your biggest problem. At the very least, you will expand your knowledge about the many ways to research. Then curl up with a good one when the snow flies.
I was born and raised in a small town called Plymouth, Pa. Immediately upon graduation from high school, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy. Afterward I chose public transportation as my means of employment. I managed public transit in a number of U. S. cities, and also in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Upon retirement from that position, I managed transportation for the Cleveland school system. Having lived overseas twice, I travelled to many parts of Asia, Africa, and the Philippines, as well as to England on many occasions, yet I never went to Wales, even though I knew my grandparents had come from there. After retiring from my regular work, I went to work full-time for the Cleveland Church of Christ, in which I am a deacon. It proved to be an extremely demanding job, so I quit that in 2002. Seeking to keep busy, I decided to look into my family history. I knew that my mother's father was born in Carmarthenshire, Wales and her
mother in Glamorganshire, Wales. I knew both my grandmothers, but both grandfathers had passed prior to my birth. Finding my greatgrandfather, David Harry, was difficult because there were so many by that name. I had to eliminate them by (1) looking for one who had a son named Edward Harry, (2) then finding an Edward Harry born the same year as my grandfather, and (3) knowing that my grandfather was in the coalhauling business. When all three matched, I knew I had found the right one. Both my great-grandparents and my grandparents had sons named David, Benjamin and John, so they had to be sorted out. I used the Welsh censuses extensively and found my grandparents' arrival in this country on Ellis Island records. I used censuses right down to the 1930 census—the most recent one published in this country. I have also obtained marriage certificates, pictures of the ships on which my ancestors came to this country, and other documentation. While doing this research, I discovered the history of my home town of Plymouth, PA. It was settled by the Connecticut Yankees who fought against the Pennsylvanians because King Charles II of England first gave the land to the Yankees, forgot, and then gave it to William Penn. Several battles over land possession took place during the Revolutionary War and finally ended in 1799. [We published an article on the Yankee-Pennamite Wars in our December 2005 issue.

I was born in Garfield Heights, Ohio and raised in Broadview Heights. I am a graduate of Brecksville High School and of the University of Akron. I became interested in genealogy in high school when I had to complete a family tree for an American History assignment. I began my research this past summer. My only regret is that I did not begin it sooner when my relatives were younger. So far, I have worked with census records and Ellis Island manifests in search of my paternal grandfather, who came from Italy. His name was Salvatore Pelosi, but when he arrived at Ellis Island, the name was changed to Sam Bluso. He never talked about his journey, which made my father and uncle wonder if he was a wanted man in Italy! Other family members have attempted to find him by using trial software subscriptions, but have been unable to find any information. This makes me all the more determined to find out more about him.

The surnames I am looking for are Pelosi and Longo on my Dad’s side, and Sheck (changed from Szczechowski before 1930) and Farren on my mom’s side. I believe that after Grandfather Sam came through Ellis Island, he spent time in Nashville or Memphis before coming to Cleveland to connect with people he knew from his home town of San Bartolomeo, Italy. My mom’s family is Polish. They settled in Pennsylvania and eventually they, too, came to Cleveland. I have not gotten past the 1930 census on my mom’s side because the search for Salvatore has consumed me. I feel guilty about it; my uncle is the last one left in my mother's family and has shared information with me; he was really excited when I told him about the resources at our library. I will see him this month and I hope to talk with him more and see the documents he has on the family.
