Just wanted to let you know that the Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois (CAGGNI) will be having their next program on Saturday, November 18, 2017 starting at 10:30 AM at the Schaumburg Township District Library.
The CAGGNI group will also be holding their Annual Potluck food celebration on the day of this program.
The program is open to any and all interested in learning more about genealogy as well as learning more about this wonderful genealogy group and meeting its members in attendance.
The title of the program is “From a Birth of a Nation to a New Birth of Freedom”. Speaker for the program is Kevin Wood as Abraham Lincoln.
Program description is:
“President Abraham Lincoln delivers a first-hand account of our nation’s history from our establishment in 1776 through the end of the Civil War in 1865. He discusses how our bold experiment in democracy, founded upon the ideals of liberty and equality, appeared destined to failure by 1854, but how the next dozen years instead brought a renewal and eventually an expansion of those great ideals: a “new birth of freedom”.
Speaker information is:
Kevin Wood is a professional Abraham Lincoln presenter/portrayer who bears a remarkable resemblance to Mr. Lincoln and who is extremely knowledgeable about his life and times. He does programs in a wide variety of settings and also writes a blog (“Loath to Close… Still!”) to encourage others to reflect upon and learn from Mr. Lincoln’s life and legacy.
