LaSalle County Genealogy Guild

February 18

Saturday, February 18th The LaSalle Genealogy Guild Ottawa will meet at the Guild Library, 115 Glover Street at 1pm.  Our speaker this month will be John Kettman of LaSalle.  John was originally from Streator.  Several years ago John began restoring the resting grounds of his ancestors, Naramor Cemetey.  John took workshop classes from the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency Office of Skeletal Remains.  According to John the first major phase of restoration to be complete in that most of the stones he has found broken have been fixed, mounted, cleaned and documented.  He uses GPS to mark the location of headstones and graves.  In the spring he will continue his work and also continue looking for his ancestors.
