Send a link to a friend

[JUNE 1, 2006]  "Antique Appraisals: Valuable or 'Priceless'" is being hosted by the Logan County Genealogical and Historical Society at 114 N. Chicago St. in Lincoln on June 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is an opportunity to clean out those closets, jewelry boxes and cupboards of old, handed-down items and see if they really do have any value or are just a nice, sentimental keepsake.

Nancy and John Glick along with Kay and Graham Curtis, appraisers from the Havana area, will be on hand to do the appraisals.

The society is asking for a $3 donation per item to be appraised, with a maximum of five items per participant. Please do not bring large or heavy items or furniture.

Preregistration is not required, although preregistration forms may be obtained from the Logan County Genealogical and Historical Society upon request. Call (217) 732-3200, mail your request to the center at 114 N. Chicago St., or stop by between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday or on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
