Poll On The Right Sidebar Has Been Closed For “Have You Ever Been To The Great Lakes Location Of The National Archives In Chicago, IL”; Results Indicated

Hi Everyone!

It is amazing that almost 2 months has passed on the life of the poll I had on the right sidebar of the blog since November 26, 2012.  It is time to move on!  I think a new poll question is in order!

The poll had asked the question whether you have ever been to the Great Lakes Location of the National Archives in Chicago, IL.

The results of the poll showed the following from the 52 total respondents that took the brief time to provide their “Yes” or “No” response to the question.  The numbers show that 31 responses noted they had been to the facility in Chicago, IL to do their Family History Research (60%) while 21 responses indicated they had not been to the facility to do on-site research in Chicago, IL (40%).

I personally have been to the Chicago, IL location of the Great Lakes location of the National Archives to research family history.  It has been a while since I have been there.  My own thought on the question is that I would have expected more who indicated they have never been there than have been there.  But I think that the 60% who responded they have been to the Great Lakes location of the National Archives  to research was more than I would have guessed.

So there you go.  A little bit more information to file away in your dusty archive vaults to compare your own experience to on researching at the Great Lakes Regional Office of the National Archives.

I will say, there were about  the same number of respondents in this just closed poll as there were in the previous poll before this!  Could it be the same interested readers responded to that poll as they did to this just recently closed poll!

I am still looking for a larger response than even that!  So come on down ——  affix your opinion as a “Yes” or “No” when so asked to the varied polls on different topics in the world of genealogy and family history research.  Your answers count.

I plan on putting up a new poll rapidly.  Come back for that one to see the new question being asked.

A big thank you to all of those that took the time to respond to this just recently closed poll.  Take a look at the results of that poll to satisfy your own curiosity.

Don’t forget to visit my Poll Archives as part of this blog.  Look for the link at the top of the homepage of the blog where it simply says “Poll Archives”.  In here you will find the statistical results of the 8 previously active polls in addition to the poll that is generally “active”.  If you were not aware of this Archive, you may want to visit to see what all the previous polls were about.

Get ready for another poll ……………………..SOON!
