Last year I attended an event sponsored by the Hamilton County Genealogical Society. They had a guest speaker who encouraged us to write. He suggested that we examine the information we have on our family and identify a theme that ties the family together. For quite a while, I realized that for our family it had to be our legacy along the Ohio River in Cincinnati and our relationship with boats.
I want to thank my brothers and sister for helping me gather together the pictures that document our family and our love of boating. I hope the end product will be something that all of us can enjoy that will bring back memories of growing up as River Rats in Cincinnati.
