2017 Programs

Feature Presentation Clip ArtAll of our library genealogy programs are held on the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month at the Central Library located at 130 S. Roselle Road in Schaumburg, Illinois starting at 7:30 PM.

The meeting room can change but we are almost always in The Classroom located on the 2nd floor of our library building right next door to the Extension Services Office.

The doors to the room open by 7 PM.  The program itself starts at 7:30 PM.  From 7:30 PM until 7:45 – 8 PM, I will have introductions of new participants and review handout material and review general genealogy issues.  I will also answer any questions during this time.  By 7:45 – 8 PM we will start with our speaker or have our Breakout Groups depending on what is scheduled for the evening.

We will start ending the program between 9:15 PM and 9:30 PM.

We must end the program by no later than 9:30 PM.
