I wanted to make you aware of an upcoming genealogy/local history program that our library will be having. On Sunday, September 7, 2014 at 1 PM, Larry Nerge will make a presentation at our library titled “Turning the Century: Schaumburg Township Families of 1900″. The program is expected to last until 4:30 PM.
Larry has presented previous programs at our library about the historical families of Schaumburg Township. He is an expert in this field.
Here is a little summary of what the program will provide:
Genealogist Larry Nerge returns to discuss his study of many families of Schaumburg Township who lived here at the turn of the century. Based on the 1900 census and a 1904 map of the township, Mr. Nerge will share information, photos and stories of our area’s German ancestors. His comprehensive research and ability to connect the families is always a highlight. Join us for an afternoon of information and social gathering!
Perhaps your own genealogical research connects to some of the early families of Schaumburg Township. Here is an opportunity to hear Larry Nerge speak about these families that might even be one of your own ancestral families! Larry is an expert regarding original families that settled in Schaumburg Township.
Perhaps you live in our area but do not have any ancestral connections to any of the early settler families of our area. You still have an opportunity to hear and learn more about the local area you call home and the families that were here at the start from an incredibly knowledgeable person.
Either way, you win!

This is a great opportunity to hear an incredibly talented and knowledgeable speaker present material on these “early” families from over 100 years ago when there was no development as we see the area today. Just imagine wide expanses of open farm fields and a little village at the corner of Schaumburg Road and Roselle Road! Larry will take you back to that time and tell you about the families that were here in 1900.
The program is only about 3 weeks away.
