It is that time once again when we will be having another Genealogy Program at the central location of the Schaumburg Township District Library on Tuesday evening, April 13, 2010 at 7:30 PM. We are located at 130 S. Roselle Road in Schaumburg, IL.
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 is a summary of the information about the program and the speaker:
The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday evening, April 13, 2010 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Teresa Steinkamp McMillin. Teresa will present a program titled “So You’ve found Your Town of German Origin – Now What?”.
Many of us may never uncover our ancestor’s town of origin. But when we do, perhaps we should have a party! That is a big discovery, but one that may still require some hard work to make it pay off for you.
Teresa will give us some insights on what to do next when you find your ancestor’s German town of origin. You will hear insights into how you work with German information to find out more but what you hear does provide universal research techniques for whatever ethnicity you are trying to uncover.
Teresa Steinkamp McMillin is a professional genealogist who specializes in German and Midwest American research, as well as reading German script. She has been interested in genealogy since she was a child and has been actively researching her German ancestry for the past nine years, as well as her husband’s Chicago Irish.
She has attended the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research and has taken college-level German courses. She was the 2007 recipient of the National Genealogical Society’s Home Study Course, which she has completed. Teresa is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the National Genealogical Society, as well as many local genealogical societies. She is the webmaster for the Northwest Suburban Council of Genealogists.
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. Introductions of new participants will occur as well as a brief review of any 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.
