I just received a notice of an upcoming program that is being held by the Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois (CAGGNI). They will be having their Annual Business Meeting and Ethnic food/Family Favorites Potluck and a program with a speaker in addition to all of the other festivities going on.
The program date is Saturday November 17, 2012 at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library at an earlier start time than normal of 9:30 AM. It sounds like a fascinating program offered by the society!
Please note that the society will be meeting at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library for this program day instead of at the Schaumburg Township District Library.
What follows after the separator line in Italics is the text of what I received from the society describing the events of the day:
Attn: Tony Kierna ,

The Revolutionary War Era, A Different Perspective
David Jahntz, will portray a Continental Army surgeon and an 18th century civilian during the War for American Independence. David will present the War for Independence from the surgeon’s viewpoint, and will also discuss the principles involved and the reasons of the war which are the twenty-seven charges listed by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence. Don’t miss this informative and entertaining presentation. David’s most prominent appearances have been on national cable productions in “Frontier Doctors” on The History Channel, on the five-hour mini-series “The American Revolution”originally broadcast by the A&E Network and on “Hunting The Lost Symbol” on the Discovery Channel. In addition, David can be seen in visitor center films of the National Park Service at their historic military sites.
CAGGNI’s business meeting and annual “family traditions” potluck will immediately precede David Jahntz’s presentation.
