I thought I would post this reminder of our next upcoming Genealogy Program at the Schaumburg Township District Library.
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 are the details of our upcoming program for Tuesday evening, August 9, 2011:
The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, August 9,2011 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Ginger Frere. Ginger will present a program titled “Searching Electronic Databases”.
Electronic databases are one of the most frequently used resources for the genealogy researcher. Knowing how to use them properly will advance your research efforts immensely. Ginger will provide useful insights into how to get the biggest bang for your electronic database research.
Ginger Frere is a librarian, researcher and life-long Chicagoan. She assists genealogists in the Local and Family History section of the Newberry Library and also works as an independent researcher.
Ginger has previously presented programs at our library, all of which have left us with new tips to pursue in our own research. We look forward to another return visit to our library from Ginger.
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 handouts and genealogical matters. It is expected that the guest speaker’s presentation will start at around 7:45-8:00 PM. We will end the session by 9:30 PM.
