The next Fulton County Genealogical Society meeting is Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. when Rhonda Casler will be sharing information about the planning and steps involved before your research visit.
Casler was born and raised near Defiance. Her father and maternal grandfather instilled a love of history and an interest in genealogy as a teen. Her first major research trip was to the National Archives and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. in 1985.
Casler went on to obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree in history with a minor in anthropology/archaeology from The Ohio State University. After serving as a reference librarian in the Local History Department (Ohioana) of the Defiance Public Library, she became the records manager and archivist for the County of Defiance. Casler is also a Trustee with the Defiance County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society and has been a professional genealogist for nearly 20 years.
