Tuesday's Tip: Benefits of Becoming a Member of the R.B. Hayes Presidential Center
By becoming a member of the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center, I have a year's free entry to the Museum and the historic home of President Rutherford B. Hayes in Fremont, Ohio on the beautiful grounds of Spiegel Grove. (The Library at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center is always free to the public.) Also included in any membership at the $45.00 level or higher, are at-home access to the databases of Heritage Quest and Newspaper Archives. In the past year, as a result of my membership to the R.B. Hayes Presidential Center, I was able to tour the historic Hayes home with two close friends, and accompany my hubby and grandsons to the popular train exhibit in December.
Also, I was able to engage in countless hours of genealogical research on my home computer via Heritage Quest and Newspaper Archives. I seriously do not wish to sound like I am posting a commercial for the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center...it is just that I have reaped so many genealogical benefits as a result of becoming a Member, that I wanted to pass along the good news. It is a great value, and I have to say that though I have been to the Hayes Center many, many times, my heart still skips a beat when we approach those gates which once graced the White House!
