This tour, hosted by the MCC-OGS will take visitors around the cemetery and stop at specific gravesites to highlight that person and/or family to tell the story of what they did during their lifetime that contributed to making Dayton and Montgomery County the great place that it is today.

  • Pioneer blacksmiths
  • Pioneer doctors
  • Suffragettes
  • Prominent businessmen
  • Church clergy
  • Dayton’s original mayors and councilmen

These special events are free and open to the public. No reservation is necessary. Meet us at the location address if you would like to join the tour. If you have questions, contact Publicity@MCC-OGS.org.

Adoptee Searches in Genealogical Research by Lynn Grubb
Saturday, September 14
Adoptee Searches in Genealogical Research by Lynn Grubb  (Monthly Meeting)
1:30 pm
Dayton Metro Library, Community Room 2-B, 215 E 3rd Street, Dayton, OH 45402 and Via Zoom
Our speaker, Lynn Grubb said:  "I always knew I was adopted.  I was told early enough that I have no memory of it. I was born in Chicago, Illinois, in the middle of the Baby Scoop Era--a time when middle-class single white women were not encouraged to keep and raise their babies.  After being cared for by on-site nurses at an adoption agency in Chicago, my parents picked me up when I was two and a half months old.  They were thrilled."
 
Speaking from the personal experience of searching for and finding her biological family, Lynn will talk about her journey and provide tips on researching adoptees.

A Stroll Through History at Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery  (Special Event)
1:30 pm
Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery, 8135 N Dixie Dr, Dayton, OH 45414
Join the Montgomery County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society and Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery on Saturday, October 12, 2024, for the last of our four cemetery tours. This tour will be in place of our regular monthly meeting.

These tours are designed for the purpose of telling the stories of the people who built and contributed to Dayton and Montgomery County. Who were they and what did they do?
 

The Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery tour, hosted by the MCC-OGS, will take visitors around the cemetery and stop at specific gravesites to highlight that person and/or family to tell the story of what they did during their lifetime.

Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery is the newest in comparison to the other cemeteries that were on the 2024 tour schedule so they don’t have the pioneers, but they still have stories to tell.

Throughout the tour, visitors will experience a variety of people who are buried here.

  • Collection of local race car drivers
  • A local historian who documented Dayton’s history in photographs.
  • Collection of local and state politicians
  • Aviation pioneers
  • Hollywood TV and movie star
  • We’ll even meet a person who was buried and later identified using DNA technology

Dayton Memorial Park will also provide great examples of what can be learned from a cemetery for genealogy researchers. 

 

Dayton Memorial Park is requesting a $5 donation that will go into the fund to replace section signage. Meet us at the location address if you would like to join the tour. If you have questions, contact Publicity@MCC-OGS.org.
