Don’t forget that our next genealogy program at the Schaumburg Township District Library will take place tomorrow evening, March 9, 2010 at 7:30 PM at the main library. I don’t think we will get snowed out for this program as we did for the last one in February!
Our program tomorrow will be one in which participants will break out into various research groups focusing on an area of ethnic research. We will also have a Beginner’s Group and a general Troubleshooting Group. The computer and projector hook-up will also be available to use during this session. Everyone is welcome. You do not have to be a Schaumburg Township District Library card holder to attend this program. You do not have to pre-register. There is no charge to participate.
Come join us for a great time to learn new things in genealogy and to share knowledge you have acquired from your own research with others.
Here are the details of our upcoming program for Tuesday evening, March 9, 2010:
The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, March 9, 2010 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. There is no formal presentation for this gathering. Instead, we will have our breakout group discussions so participants can work within a small group of people having specific interests in a common genealogical topic. The object is to share information and experience on this topic among those in the breakout group.
We are planning on having the same breakout groups we had in our previous breakout groups based on various nationalities. These will be Polish, Czech, German, Irish, British, Italian, Scandinavian, as well as Colonial American. There will also be a Beginners Group as well as a general all-purpose “troubleshooting” group.
A laptop computer hooked to our projector will also be available to use during this program.
Some of the above mentioned groups may be eliminated if there are not enough participants in any one group to make it beneficial. Some groups that have not been identified may be added.
The doors to the room will open at approximately 7 PM so participants can pick up any handouts, review books and journals and interact with other participants. Tony Kierna, the STDL genealogist, will start the program at 7:30 PM. Introductions of new participants will occur as well as a brief review of any handouts and genealogical matters. It is expected that the breakout groups will form at around 8 PM. We will end the session by 9:30 PM at the latest.
