March 2012 Schaumburg Township District Library Genealogy Program Handouts Uploaded As A PDF for March 13, 2012 Genealogy Program

Hi Everyone!

I have added the March 2012 Schaumburg Township District Library Genealogy Program Handouts as a PDF file into the PROGRAM HANDOUTS Category on the right sidebar of the blog.

Here is a direct link to the March 2012 Handouts for your convenience:

March 2012 Schaumburg Township District Library Genealogy Program Handouts

Take a look at it if you choose to browse through it in advance of our Genealogy Program that will take place on Tuesday evening, March 13, 2012 at 7:30 PM at our main library location at 130 S. Roselle Road in Schaumburg, IL.

You can read the handouts online or you can save them as a PDF file to your own computer for reading offline and more detailed searching through all of the contents.

You will also note that I have started “highlighting” in this uploaded PDF key points within the handout  by using  the “yellow highlighting” function within Microsoft Word.  This will allow your eyes to visually see key points within the handouts that I want to emphasize.  I hope you will enjoy being able to more easily see these key points within the set of handouts through this highlighting technique.  I plan on highlighting within the Handout file on a going forward basis.

Please note that the Handouts PDF file has embedded Bookmarks to allow you to move to the handouts of interest to you quickly without having to scroll through the entire document.  Just open the Bookmark window in the PDF file and select the handout of interest for quick access.

You can also get to the handouts of interest to you quickly via the Table of Contents at the beginning of the document.  You will find hyperlinks that will get you directly to the handout of interest to you from the Table of Contents.

Please note that you can access directly any and all URL Links that you find within the Handouts PDF.  You can get directly to the website being mentioned from within the handout being mentioned.

Enjoy the handouts.

  1. Tony-
    I had NO IDEA you had started a blog and was so excited to find it! I was able to attend ONE meeting at the Schaumburg library before my 1st daughter was born and still am only able to do my genealogy in little snippets of time, usually late at night online. So excited to see your monthly “handouts” now available as PDF. Yay! I can still follow along, even though I can’t usually make meetings.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Melissa,

      How did you happen to “discover” us?

      I am glad you discovered our blog. The blog was always in our plans. I have been authoring it for about 27 months. It does afford me the ability to put all of what was formerly paper handouts in electronic format and place them on the blog. This affords anyone the ability to access the material, both current data and past data.

      Being able to share material online that is time sensitive is also a bonus. Once I find out about something I can get the information on the blog very quickly well in advance of the actual date related to the material.

      I am so glad you can still be connected with us through the blog even if you can’t make any of the programs.

      Come on back and visit us in person if you can on one of our program nights. Treat yourself to one of our great speakers we have!

      Thanks for leaving the comment.
