New Blog Page Added At Top Of The Homepage Of The Blog; National Archives Research Aids; Provided By Kathryn Barrett, Our May 8, 2012 Genealogy Program Speaker

Hi Everyone!

The new blog Page has been added.  Look at the top area of the Home Page of this blog for the new page item that is titled “National Archives Research Aids”.

This new page consists of the 22 handouts that were provided by Kathryn Barrett, our genealogy program speaker for May 8, 2012.  Kathryn volunteers at the Great Lakes Regional office of the National Archives that is located at 7358 S. Pulaski Road in Chicago, IL.

All of the research aids were provided to me in paper format.  I was able to convert the paper of each one to a PDF file that has been uploaded to the blog.

The research aids run the gamut of a variety of topics that can be used by yourself to better understand a topic or process that may actually apply to your own research efforts.

A big thank you to Kathryn for sharing these with me!

The best thing to do is to just click on the link to the new page and then browse through what I wrote as an overview.  Then take a look at the list of 22 items, some with rather lengthy titles, some much shorter.  Open up the PDF.  Take a gander at what is there.

It may not be of direct importance to you at this time but just make a mental note that these research aids from the Great Lakes Office of the National Archives exists on this blog for your future reference.

Enjoy the new material!

A big thank you again to Kathryn Barrett for sharing this material with us.
