My mom's family ran a small town bar for generations and I always wondered how things worked -- or didn't work -- during Prohibition. After all, we weren't the Yuenglings and couldn't turn the bar into an ice cream parlor. If you're interested in what happened in Schuylkill County during Prohibition, stop by the Schuylkill County Historical Society this Wednesday at 6:30 pm for a Prohibition Talk by Guy Graybill. Graybill is the author of "Prohibition's Prince: The Bizarre Life of America's Millionaire Moonshiner". The cost is $5 for the public and free for members.
Interested in genealogy? Well, here's a new twist -- property genealogy. Jean Dellock will be conducting a class on researching the history of your home or other property. Remember that family bar I told you about? I'd love to research the history of that building! The class will be held at the Schuylkill County Historical Society on Saturday, March 7 from 10 am to noon. Cost is $20 for the public and $15 for members and includes some light refreshments. To reserve a spot contact them at 570-622-7540 or firstname.lastname@example.org
