"History Dress Up Day" at MGC
April 29, 2013
What better way each year to celebrate the infamous April Fool’s Day than to dress up! Here at the Midwest Genealogy Center, we are all about history, family, and maybe not dressing up, but definitely about making history come alive! We started this fun "History Dress Up Day" five years ago when we moved into our new building. Since then we have had staff dress as ancestors of all descriptions.
We have had famous and not so famous visitors like Annie Oakley (we checked her firearms at the door), Queen Elizabeth I, a seventeenth century pilgrim, a Freedom Rider, and a pioneer (she left her covered wagon at home). Jane Goodall also visited (without her primates). One year we even had a “Rebel with a Genealogy Cause!” Poodle skirts, choir robes, and even polyester make the day fun.
But don’t wait until April 1st each year to visit us here at the Midwest Genealogy Center. We make history come alive every day, as we help you search for your ancestors—no fooling!
