Previous Programs 2002 – 2013

Hi Everyone!

Included in this BLOG PAGE is a listing of the various Genealogy Programs that we have had at the Schaumburg Township District Library from 2002 through 2013.

Although it is nice to see what is coming up at the library as a program, it is also nice to see what topics and what speakers we have had over the years.  This way the researcher seeing this page can gauge what topics exist in genealogy and who has presented such a topic local in our area.

I thought I would share this with you.

The programs are presented in the order of most recent year going back in time e.g. 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006 etc. and within each year the months are shown January through December.
