March 9, 2010 Genealogy Program Reminder at the Schaumburg Township District Library at 7:30 PM

Hi Everyone!

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.

Our Next Genealogy Program Is Coming Up On Tuesday Evening March 9, 2010 At 7:30 PM

Hi Everyone!

I thought I would send out this reminder of our next upcoming Genealogy Program at the Schaumburg Township District Library.  It seems like it has been forever since we last gathered.  This was due to the cancellation of the February 2010 program at our library due to the heavy and lingering snowstorm that hit us that day.  Well as Clint Eastwood would say “Do You Feel Lucky?”  I have to think that all of the bad weather we experienced since December 2009 surely will leave us for this program.  It is uncanny how all of the bad and threatening weather seems to target the 2nd Tuesday of each month when we have our genealogy program.  We need a weather break!!

POINTers In Person (PIP) Italian Genealogy Group Will Have a Program at Schaumburg Township District Library on March 20, 2010

Hi Everyone!

I have just received a notice from the local Italian Genealogy Group commonly known as POINTers In Person (PIP) that they will be having a genealogy program at the Schaumburg Township District Library on Saturday morning, March 20, 2010 from 10:30 AM until 12:30 PM.

They will be using the Rasmussen Conference Room on the 2nd floor of our library.

Their speaker for this program will be Diane Dassow.

Diane will give a program titled “Get the Scoop: Interviewing to Gather Family Stories”

Please visit the web site for this group to obtain further detailed information about the program and about the group.  You can visit them at POINTers In Person Chicago North Chapter 27.

For those doing Italian genealogy research you will want to become aware of this group as a great resource for your own Italian research.  Participating with groups that focus on your own ethnic area of genealogical interest is one of the best ways to advance your own research.  You can learn from those that have been researching longer than you on the subject and you can also teach those that may not have the depth of research knowledge that you may have acquired.

The PIP group often uses our library for its programs.  As I become aware of any future programs I will certainly share that via this blog.
