The February meeting of the Tazewell County Genealogical and Historical Society will take place Tuesday, February 14th at 7:00PM at the Ehrlicher Research Center, 719 N 11th Street, Pekin.
Rachel Schwarzendruber, University of Illinois Extension Educator on Family Life, will present the program Who Gets Grandma's Yellow Pie Plate? - Transferring Non-titled Property . Rachel will discuss important things to consider when making decisions about transferring non-titled property at death.
Almost everyone has personal belongings such as wedding pictures, a baseball glove, or a yellow pie plate that have special meaning for them and for other family members. The transfer of non-titled property is an issue that impacts individuals regardless of their financial worth or cultural background. It is assumed to be unimportant or an issue that takes care of itself, so it is often ignored until a crisis occurs.
The meeting is open to the public. A short business meeting will follow. For more information visit www.tcghs.org or phone 477-3044.
