I thought I would just post some information about our next upcoming Schaumburg Township District Library Genealogy Program that is scheduled for Tuesday evening at 7:30 PM on January 12, 2010.
There is no cost for anyone to attend. There is no pre-registration for this program.
Just come on down and have a great time learning some new facets of genealogy that can help with your own research efforts.
The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Craig Pfannkuche. Craig will present a program titled “Cemetery Inscriptions”.
In addition to teaching, from which he is now retired, Craig has held several leadership positions in area genealogical and historical organizations. He is currently the president of Memory Trail Research, Inc., on the Board of Directors for the Chicago Genealogical Society, he is the Genealogical Archivist for the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Historical Society, and he’s on the Board of Directors for the McHenry County (Illinois) Genealogical Society.
The doors to the room will open at approximately 7 PM so participants can pick up the handouts, review books and journals and interact with other participants. Tony Kierna, the STDL genealogist, will start the meeting at 7:30. Introductions of new participants will occur as well as a brief review of handouts and genealogical matters. It is expected that the guest speaker’s presentation will start at around 8-8:15 PM. We will end the session by 9:30 PM.
Let’s cross our fingers that our midwest weather will moderate for this planned program. Wouldn’t it be nice to have just a 30 degree evening with no snow for a change!!
Our weather during the most recent winters has seemed to be very challenging for the evenings on which we have our Genealogy Program. Winter storms of the last few years seem to just wait until the evening of our Genealogy Program!! Let’s hope this upcoming program will not be impacted by the brutal weather we have had of late.
I hope to see many of you at our upcoming genealogy program on January 12, 2010. Craig is a great speaker and we are looking forward to see him again with another one of his great presentations.
