This Thursday evening (Oct. 2nd) at 7:00 'clock we shall once again meet at the Truman Depot. And what a program we have. Joan Cole began delving into her family background at the age of 16. Her mother encouraged her to find out about the family legend that they had a witch as an ancestor. The hunt for the witch proved interesting. I won't tell you the rest of the story, you will have to attend for the ending. Mrs. Cole attended the Dayton Art Institute in Dayton, Ohio and then the University of Ohio before moving to Kansas City, Mo. in 1966 where she married Jimmie Cole. She is a member of several Genealogy Societies and well versed in research.
