For those of you that are doing Italian Genealogy research in the Chicago area, I think you will want to take notice of the following piece of information that I received from Jennifer Holik (our guest speaker for our February 12, 2013 genealogy program).
Casa Italia Chicago is a non-profit organization in Stone Park, Illinois, where people meet to pursue common goals, preserve our past, celebrate our heritage and ensure passage of values to future generations. Casa Italia offers a children’s summer camp, Italian language classes, and cultural programs throughout the year.
Take a look at the full press release provided to me by Jennifer that notes the creation of the new Genealogy Department within Casa Italia Chicago. You can look at the release here:
It sure sounds like the Italian genealogical research community in our area is really ramping up the resources available to help the Italian Genealogical researcher.
Take a look at the above detailed press release as it may give you some good insight into new things that are taking shape with the formation of this new Genealogy Department.
It also sounds like this new department will be presenting programs of interest to the Italian genealogical researcher in the near future.
Jennifer Holik will be the new Genealogy Department Manager for Casa Italia Chicago.
