Big plans for Multicultural Genealogical Center
(2008-08-26)
(WOUB) - The Multicultural Genealogical Center of Southern Ohio has big plans.

At the top of the list for the Morgan County group, get out the message that the area has a rich heritage.

The Multicultural Genealogical Center is located in Chesterhill where work is now underway to turn a historic house into a focal point for history and genealogy.

Russ Tippett is vice president of the Center's Board.

He says they've put together an action plan that includes making improvements in Chesterhill.

Painting and landscaping is part of it.

Bringing in tours is another.

The idea is to tell the story of the local population of African-Americans, Native-Americans and European-Americans.

The group says the multicultural-multiracial people have made significant contributions in the Ohio River Valley.
