Tuesday's Tip: Searching the Cleveland Jewish News Archives

The Cleveland Jewish News Archives is just one of the many research databases available at the Cuyahoga County Public Library's online resources. I went to the search box, and entered Sandusky, since that is my hometown. Retrieved were articles about funerals, weddings, engagements, business openings, retirements, and many, many more! One article that was interesting was in the "Cleveland Cavalcade" column from the Cleveland Jewish News dated July 9, 1971. It turns out that five young men from Cleveland went to Cedar Point over the July 4th weekend. They found no hotel rooms available in Sandusky. Not knowing what else to do, they contacted their friend Kenny Miller. Mr. and Mrs. Dick Miller of Sandusky allowed the five friends of their son to spend the night at their home, and their hospitality was long remembered!

Any Ohio resident can obtain a free library card from the Cuyahoga County Public Library. It is enlightening to put in the name of your hometown as a keyword, to see what genealogical resources await!
