FREE Speaker Series

In addition to our Opening Day festivities, Zoar will host a FREE Speaker Series at the Zoar Schoolhouse (located at 221 East 4th Street, Zoar, Ohio 44697) from 1pm-2pm. Author Claire Gebben received a fantastic surprise when her relatives in Freinsheim, Germany discovered old letters in their attic written by her ancestors, German immigrants to Cleveland, Ohio. The discovery led to the historical novel The Last of the Blacksmiths (Coffeetown Press, 2014), based on the true story of Michael Harm, a young blacksmith who travels from the Bavarian Rhinelands to Ohio to pursue an artisan way of life. To research the novel, Ms. Gebben embarked on a journey that included four days of intensive blacksmithing and a month-long stay in the German Rhinelands. In her powerpoint presentation she’ll share research adventures, the little-known historical influence of Ohio Germans, and genealogy tips she picked up while writing the book.
