Stories Beneath the Stones Virtual Presentation

Local author and historian Kathi Kresol will share her favorite stories during this virtual event. Our local cemeteries are filled with interesting stories just waiting to be discovered. These include the slightly odd tales of some of our county's most unusual settlers. Winnebago County has been the home of Native American legends, a psychic turned medical doctor, and truly horrible crimes. Kathi has been researching area cemeteries for over a decade for her Haunted Rockford Tours and her Rock River Times column, "Voices from the Grave.” Kathi introduces the fascinating folks of this area where some of the tallest tales are true.Registration is required. You will receive an email on the morning of the event with the WebEX link directing you to the LIVE presentation.Follow the link to register. https://bit.ly/2W3Cc20
