I thought I would post this reminder of our next upcoming Genealogy Program at the Schaumburg Township District Library.
There is no pre-registration required in order to attend the program. There is no fee charged to attend. Anyone can attend this program. You do not have to be a library card holder with the Schaumburg Township District Library in order to attend.
Here are the details of our upcoming program for Tuesday evening, November 8, 2011:
The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, November 8,2011 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Jeffrey Bockman. Jeffrey will present a program titled “Didn’t Find It in the Index?”.
Are you using all of the online genealogical databases and not having that much luck finding the person you think should be there? We all encounter the same challenges. Jeffrey will provide us with some insights into how you can better search the material and produce successful results in your online searching of these databases.
Jeffrey Bockman is a Genealogy Lecturer & Writer. He was a contributing editor for the former Everton’s Genealogical Helper and a feature writer for the former Heritage Quest Magazine. His articles have also appeared in various other publications. He was the President of the DuPage County Genealogical Society for 5 terms. He is the author of “Give Your Family A Gift That Money Can’t Buy”, a book that encourages people to record and preserve their family’s history.
The doors to the room will open at approximately 7 PM so participants can pick up any handouts, review books and journals and interact with other participants. Tony Kierna, the STDL genealogist, will start the program at 7:30. Introductions of new participants will occur as well as a brief review of handouts and genealogical matters. It is expected that the guest speaker’s presentation will start at around 7:45-8:00 PM. We will end the session by 9:30 PM.
