Our Next Genealogy Program Is Coming Up On Tuesday Evening May 8, 2012 At 7:30 PM

Hi Everyone!

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, May 8, 2012:

Kathryn Barrett

The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom.  The guest speaker for the evening will be Kathryn Barrett.  Kathryn will present a program titled “Military Service Records”.

Kathryn Barrett is a genealogy researcher, teacher and lecturer at the local, regional and national level. Kathryn has been a volunteer at the National Archives & Records Administration (NARA) at the Great Lakes Regional Center for more than 15 years. She recently organized a local homeowner association genealogical group and makes monthly presentations on a wide variety of genealogical topics, including Naturalization, Evolution of the Federal Census and The Orphan Train. Kathryn is a professional member of the National Genealogical Society (NGS), the Federation of Genealogical Society (FGS), and the Wisconsin State Historical Society with 35+ years of genealogy experience.

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.

For further information contact Tony Kierna at 847-923-3390.
