Here is the text description of the program provided to me by Michael Mulholland, the Genealogy Librarian at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library:
11/08/2014 – 10:00am – 12:00pm
Teresa Steinkamp McMillin, Certified Genealogist and German research expert will discuss her research and publication of Guide to Hanover Military Records, 1514–1866, on Microfilm at the Family History Library. Military records for the former Kingdom of Hanover in Germany can include a soldier’s date and place of birth, his father’s name, and widows’ pensions. This publication is the only English-language guide to this gold mine of information for genealogists. With this guide, a researcher can quickly determine all available records for a regiment and time period and know where to find them in the Family History Library’s (FHL) microfilm holdings in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Presenter Teresa S. McMillin, C.G.
No Library Card Required
Teresa is an outstanding genealogy speaker. We have had her at our own library making genealogical presentations. She will return back to our library for a future presentation in April 2015.
We have added her recently published book to our own circulating collection to help you in your own Germanic research.
If you have any research that connects you to the Hanover area of Germany for your own ancestors, this might be a good opportunity to hear Teresa share her knowledge about the military records that exist for this area of Germany. Your own German ancestors may have served in the Hanover military and you might be able to be found in the records Teresa has written about in her book.
Just knowing what resources exist for your own research needs is often half the battle!
