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, October 9, 2018:
Our genealogy program will be held on Tuesday evening, October 9, 2018. Our guest speaker Steve Szabados will present a program titled “How DNA Can Help Your Genealogy Research”.
DNA testing has become a popular topic at genealogy meetings, and the growth in the number of DNA tests has been fueled by numerous promotional sales and promises to unlock secrets in your genealogy research. In some cases, DNA results have been powerful in producing clues and knocking down brick walls, but in many other cases, the results have been confusing.
Steve Szabados will share his own impact on the DNA test he submitted. These tools led the speaker to a secret portion of his ancestry that one of his ancestors took to her grave. So be prepared. If you have to unlock secrets, there may be a dark side that you may regret discovering.
Steve Szabados is a genealogy speaker, author, and columnist. He received a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois and an MBA from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.
He has been researching his ancestors for about fourteen years and has traced ancestors back to 1600s New England and 1730’s in Poland, Germany, Bohemia, and Slovenia. He has given numerous presentations to genealogical groups and libraries in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin. His goal is to share his passion for Family History.
He is a member of the Polish Genealogical Society of America, the Illinois State Genealogical Society and Northwest Suburban Genealogical Society. He is also a genealogy volunteer at the Arlington Heights Illinois Library. He is the author of six print books – Basic Genealogy, Write Your Family History, Finding Grandma’s European Ancestors, Polish Genealogy, Memories of Dziadka, Quick Reference to U.S. Census Records and Deciphering the 1790-1840 U.S. Census Records. He has also published five eBooks on genealogy. All are must have books for the beginning genealogist looking for their European heritage.
