For 56 years, the Corry Area Historical Society has been collecting, preserving and documenting artifacts and records of Erie County's second city. Its collections include a refurbished Climax Locomotive Engine, one of the powerful steam engines made in Corry for use in logging operations and other rugged industries. Building up the Historical society collections led to extensive genealogy research. The Society now offers occasional classes in how to safely restore gravestones (DO NOT USE SHAVING CREAM, CHALK OR DETERGENT). Her research has led Lisa Puckly to become a specialized genealogist who helps adopted people find their birth families. Loretta Beckerink and Lisa Puckly of the Society will present to ESGR members at our meeting July 13 via the Zoom online application.
