Clark County was one of Indiana's original counties. The cultural history goes back to the establishment of Clarksville in 1783. Jeffersonville began as a settlement in 1786 and was named for Thomas Jefferson in 1801. Jeanne Burke will review the highlights of these river towns from frontier days through the antebellum and Civil War periods, then the years before 1900 leading into the new century,1900 -1940, including gambling, gangstas and prohibition. World War II was very busy on the home front followed by return to normalcy. Presently these two cities are engaged in ongoing preservation and redevelopment. Jeanne will be showing pictures of people and places, telling the stories she knows.

Tamara Hallo, MLS

Educator, Librarian, and Genealogist with professional experience in Lecturing, researching, document retrieval, and evidence analysis.


I embarked on my journey to become a professional genealogist more than 15 years ago after finding a binder full of family history that was given to my mom by her great-aunt. I was immediately hooked and picked up researching where she left off. Throughout the years, I have focused on discovering and sharing the stories of my ancestors, all the while realizing that I am the person I am today because of their stories…their trials, tribulations, happiness, resilience, determination, and strength. Researching their lives has led to discovering my roots in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Maryland, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Canada, England, Scotland, and Sweden.
