CRYSTAL LAKE – A Lunch and Learn event will be from noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday at the Colonel Palmer House, 660 E. Terra Cotta Ave.
McHenry County historian Craig Pfannkuche will reveal the secrets to “Digging Grandma’s Privy.”
Pfannkuche’s presentation will explain how individuals can trace the history of McHenry County settlers. Who once lived on the farms and homesteads that originally existed here? Unfortunately, the descriptive records of their lives cannot be found in surviving paper records. Where can data be found? Historians have found some answers by “Digging Grandma’s Privy.”
The Lunch and Learn program fee is $15 for nonresidents and $10 for residents.
The cost includes a boxed lunch. Registration is required through the Crystal Lake Park District at 815-459-0608 or crystallakeparks.org.
For information, contact Mary Ott at firstname.lastname@example.org or 815-477-5873.
