Chicago Genealogical Society Has Posted Their Upcoming Genealogy Programs For September 2012 To December 2012 At Their Website

Hi Everyone!

As our hot, hot, hot summer really gets into the “dog days”, maybe now is the time to turn our attention to future genealogy programs in our area.

I just noticed in the recent July/August 2012, Volume 45, Number 1 issue of the Newsletter of the Chicago Genealogical Society, they made mention of their upcoming programs through the balance of 2012, starting in September 2012.

They have these programs posted at their website with a nice long detailed description of their programs from September to December 2012.

Here are the titles of the programs.  Some are noted as “tours”; some are “programs”:

September 8, 2012 – Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary: The United Library (tour)

October 6, 2012 – “Chicago Bus Tour: Dark Alleys of Chicago Family History” (tour)

November 3, 2012 – “History of the US Federal Census” (program)

December 1, 2012 – “Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture” (tour)

Visit the website of the Chicago Genealogical Society at their Calendar of Events section at the following website for more detailed descriptions of the above programs:

Chicago Genealogical Society Calendar of Events – September to December 2012 Programs

Get your genealogy “mojo” ramped up for what is often the start of “genealogy season” that starts in September for many genealogy societies that take the summer off.

See if any of the above programs has a good fit for your own research needs.

July 2012 Schaumburg Township District Library Genealogy Program Handouts Uploaded As A PDF for July 10, 2012 Genealogy Program

Hi Everyone!

I have added the July 2012 Schaumburg Township District Library Genealogy Program Handouts as a PDF file into the PROGRAM HANDOUTS Category on the right sidebar of the blog.

Here is a direct link to the July 2012 Handouts for your convenience:

July 2012 Schaumburg Township District Library Genealogy Program Handouts

Take a look at it if you choose to browse through it in advance of our Genealogy Program that will take place on Tuesday evening, July 10, 2012 at 7:30 PM at our main library location at 130 S. Roselle Road in Schaumburg, IL.

You can read the handouts online or you can save them as a PDF file to your own computer for reading offline and more detailed searching through all of the contents.

You will also note that I have started “highlighting” in this uploaded PDF key points within the handout  by using  the “yellow highlighting” function within Microsoft Word.  This will allow your eyes to visually see key points within the handouts that I want to emphasize.  I hope you will enjoy being able to more easily see these key points within the set of handouts through this highlighting technique.  I plan on highlighting within the Handout file on a going forward basis.

Please note that the Handouts PDF file has embedded Bookmarks to allow you to move to the handouts of interest to you quickly without having to scroll through the entire document.  Just open the Bookmark window in the PDF file and select the handout of interest for quick access.

You can also get to the handouts of interest to you quickly via the Table of Contents at the beginning of the document.  You will find hyperlinks that will get you directly to the handout of interest to you from the Table of Contents.

Please note that you can access directly any and all URL Links that you find within the Handouts PDF.  You can get directly to the website being mentioned from within the handout being mentioned.

Enjoy the handouts.
