  1. I am looking for an indiviual and I believe you might be able to help.
    My name is Al Centonze and I was a Student at North Ridgeville High from 81-85.
    I am tring to find my history teacher who was a re-enactor at the time. Unfortunatly I can not remember his name and do not have a year book to look in.
    I am currently 1st Lt. in the 9th Kentuck US Vol Infantry Co. B Nashville TN and would like to get in contact with him.

    I would appreciate any help you coud give me.

  2. Contact North Ridgeville High School Library, or the public library in NR, ask them to check the high school year books for history teacher names for select years. Or, maybe the board of ed.

  3. Your gift in memory of Dr. Les West is greatly appreciated by St. Paul’s Lutheran Preschool. Thank you all.

  4. I am sorting through a large family library and have 2 Civil War books that are collectible and appear to be scarse – Leslie Frank’s The Soldier in Our Civil War: A Pictorial History of the Conflict, 1861-1865, Vols. I and II. Books depict the valor of the soldier as displayed on the battle-field, maps, plans and battle scenes. Books are in good condition. Would like to make contact with someone in your group who might be interested in their purchase or perhaps a referral. I knew Marge Wilson whom I believe was part of your group.
