The Chicago Genealogical Society (CGS) will be offering a genealogical bus tour on Saturday, October 4, 2014 between 9:30 AM and 4 PM.
The theme of the tour will be “The Chicago Fire”.
The tour will be led by Craig Pfannkuche of the Chicago Genealogical Society who specializes in Chicago family history research and whose father was a Captain on the Chicago Fire Department.
The tour bus will be ready for boarding at 9:30 AM and will depart from and return to the northwest corner of the Ogilvie Transportation Center (Madison and Clinton Streets) in Chicago.
You do not have to be a member of the Chicago Genealogical Society in order to participate. However, your cost will be slightly higher than for members ($45 non-members; $35 members).
Take a look at the link to a PDF of a full-page description of the event that contains even more background and details about the events of the day.
Here is a link to the one page PDF with all of the details:
I have had Craig as a speaker at our genealogy programs. He is fantastic in that setting. I can’t even imagine how good he will be at being a guide for an all-day event on a subject he knows a great deal of information.
If interested, you must submit payment using the form that is the PDF above by September 27, 2014. Space is limited.
Sounds like a great local trip on a topic that always comes up in October each year when the Chicago Fire of 1871 is the topic de jour of the month!
