Irma Franke, one of the earliest members of the Society, will be moving at the end of this month to the Chicago area. Irma cites her failing eyesight plus some other medical issues as the reason to be near her son and other family members.
Irma developed her love for genealogy quite a while ago and has published two books about her family history. Ever the stalwart worker in our club, Irma has held office, taught beginners classes, facilitated the German SIG and has contributed much to this club.
Irma’s presence will be missed and if you’ve a few moments please express to her your heartfelt thanks for her work in the Society. Her residence is 1249 E Crown Ridge Drive or her phone number is 825-1198.
Irma will be donating to our library her many volumes of genealogical reference material which focuses on Germanic research and immigration.
