Reminder: Our Next Genealogy Program at STDL Is Tomorrow July 9, 2019

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, July 9, 2019:

Dan Niemiec

The title of our program is “Chicago Genealogy Vital Records Online”.  Our guest speaker is Dan Niemiec.

This is an ever-evolving presentation on the available Chicago birth, marriage, and death records on-line. Dan Niemiec, genealogy correspondent for Fra Noi, will explain how to get free and fee-based genealogy records.

Dan Niemiec has been the Italian genealogy correspondent of Fra Noi for 10 years (over 120 monthly columns). He is co-founder and immediate past president of the Italian genealogy group called POINTers In Person, Chicago-North chapter. He has given many presentations to local and national genealogy conferences and societies. His Italian ancestral lines go back to the mid-late-1600s, and his Polish lines go back to the mid 1700s. By tracing descendant lines from his ancestors, he has found over 77,000 relatives, the result of 25 years of original research.   

Dan has been speaking and writing about genealogy for over a decade. Years of participating and coaching high school forensics have made his presentations both informative and entertaining. Dan’s background in computers and databases has made him an expert at genealogy web site search techniques. 

Doors will open at approximately 7 p.m. so you can pick-up handouts, review books and journals, and network with other participants. Tony Kierna will start the program at 7:30 p.m. with introductions of new participants and a brief review of handouts and genealogical matters.  We will end the program by 9:30 pm.

Our Upcoming July 9, 2019 Genealogy Program Presenter Dan Niemiec And His Genealogy Articles Published In Fra Noi

Hi Everyone!

Dan Niemiec

In anticipation of our upcoming Genealogy Program at our library on Tuesday evening, July 9, 2019, I wanted to make you aware of the writings of Dan Niemiec, our program presenter, in Fra Noi (Amongst Us), an Italian online magazine dedicated to all things about the Italian American community.

Dan has been writing for the magazine for a long, long time, creating genealogical articles of interest for the community.

There is a nice link within the Fra Noi magazine that allows you to see the many, many articles that Dan has had published over the years.

Archives In Fra Noi To The Genealogical Articles Written By Dan Niemiec

His most recent article is at the top of the very first page within the link contents above.  Scroll down to the bottom and you can keep selecting the next series of articles and on and on.

I did read through the entirety of the 2 most recent articles written by Dan (May 20, 2019 and April 11, 2019).  They are lengthy and will pull you in to read the entirety of the article because the story of each article is that good!  And I guarantee you will pick up the lesson to be learned about some aspect of genealogy that can undoubtedly help you in your own research.

Dan certainly knows his genealogical material.  See what you think of all that he has written about on so many different genealogical topics.

What a goldmine of great articles to discover via the link above to the articles written by Dan Niemiec!!

We should have a great presentation from Dan Niemiec at our July 9, 2019 Genealogy Program at our library.  Looking forward to seeing Dan next Tuesday evening.
