The Ozaukee County Historical
Society will hold its first fund-raising luncheon on October
15th at the Cedarburg Cultural Center. Leslie Bellais, the
curator of social history for the Wisconsin Historical
Society will give her delightful presentation, “Victorian’s
Secrets”. This revealing history of woman’s undergarments is
slightly risqué, but also educational and humorous. The
event will include a lunch, cash bar and silent auction.

the Ozaukee County Historical Society on Monday evening,
November 7, at the Cedarburg Cultural Center, as we focus on
preserving and sharing oral histories. Our speaker for the
evening is lifelong Ozaukee County resident, Dick Liersch,
Founder of “My Living Legacy”.
over 35 years, Dick has been video recording life stories.
His passion for saving these stories has evolved from a
hobby into a “how-to” compact disc called “My Living
Legacy”, sold on Amazon. Dick will teach us all the basics
on how to video record a life story for both personal family
use and for historical societies. He will cover the
equipment needed and the “how-to” including the “who, what,
where and when”—and the “do’s and don’ts” of the recording
process. Dick will also discuss lighting and sound and how
to prepare interview questions.
Ozaukee County Historical Society appreciates all the
dedication and work that was accomplished by the volunteers
at Ozaukee County Pioneer Village, Stony Hill School, and
the Hazel Wirth Research Center in the past and present.
Although most of the volunteers for OCHS are Ozaukee County
residents, people from Washington, Sheboygan, Milwaukee and
Waukesha counties also volunteer. OCHS looks forward to
working with all volunteers as they help to preserve the
history of Ozaukee County and make it available to present
and future generations. Thank you for your service!
