    The prophets of the Old Testament spoke for God. Sometimes they spoke with actions more than words. The Prophet Hosea loved God and would do anything God asked him to do. God wanted to communicate that His love for Israel was unconditional so God called Hosea to marry a prostitute named Gomer. She was not a woman looking to become better. Even when Hosea showed her unconditional love that she did not deserve, she deserted him and returned to her prostitution.

  • History Center hosts personal genealogy workshop

    As a general rule, vital records weren’t kept in the United States until the early 1900s. This makes it more challenging for anyone researching a relative prior to that time. But the information vital records contain makes the search worthwhile: full name of individual being researched, date of a certain event (birth/death), county, state or town where event took place. This is all valuable knowledge to someone searching for a needle in a haystack.
