Our Local History librarian has just made me aware that Larry Nerge is coming back to our library on Sunday, September 26, 2010 for a Part 2 presentation on the “founding families” of Schaumburg from St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. Larry visited our library a few years ago and presented us with Part 1 of the “founding families”. He will expound on more “founding families” in this Part 2 presentation.
Larry is very knowledgeable of these families and he himself is a direct descendant of the “Nerge” family from Schaumburg.
For those of you lucky enough to have already established some direct lineage connection to any of the “founding families” of Schaumburg you may want to consider marking this date down to attend Larry’ program. You may leave the program knowing even more about your own Schaumburg family or how other “founding families” may have been connected to your own “founding family”.
What follows next in Bold and Italics is a Public Relations description of the event. Feel free to contact Jane Rozek, our Local History librarian, if you any further questions regarding this upcoming event.
Here is the program description:
