Way back in August 2010 I made mention to those that had attended the August Genealogy Program at our library that I had been interviewed by the Daily Herald for an upcoming genealogy article that they were working on for publication in the Fall of 2010. I also indicated that the participants at that evening’s program would see a Daily Herald photographer taking pictures of the event throughout the evening.
I found out yesterday with a bang that the article had in fact been published in the November 15, 2010 edition of the Daily Herald in the Neighbor section of the paper. I did not receive a “head’s up” from the reporter that it was to appear on this date. I found out about the publication from other staff members in the library that had seen the article.
They congratulated me and were impressed with the size of the article and its contents!
The article that was published also contains information from Albert Whiteside, the Director of the Latter Day Saints Family History Center in Schaumburg.
I also want to note that there was a “parallel” article in this section that focused on the “personal” side of genealogy researching as experienced by Barb Peterson who attends our monthly genealogy programs. Congratulations to Barb for the nice story she conveyed to the reporter on her own adventures into the world of genealogical research!
So finally after 3 months of waiting we can now bask in the glory of our 15 minutes of fame!!
I am including links in this blog post to the two articles for your reading pleasure so you can enjoy both articles and the accompanying pictures taken by the Daily Herald Photographer both at our August 2010 genealogy program and at our library the day after the August 2010 genealogy program.
The reporter did a great job in putting all of the information I provided to her from the lengthy interview she conducted with me in August 2010! The article also contains a “boxed” section within the article highlighting this genealogy blog, our monthly genealogy programs at our library and the local Schaumburg Latter Day Saints Family History Center (FHC).
Here are the links to these two great articles from the Daily Herald website:
Don’t forget to look at the “Photos” Tab within the article to see not only some of the pictures that were actually published in the print edition, but also some additional pictures that are viewable only from within the online article.
Enjoy the articles!
