Here is a summary of the information about the program:
The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Teresa Steinkamp McMillin, CG. Teresa will present a program titled “Reading Between the Lines of the City Directory”.
This lecture encourages one to go beyond the obvious use of a city directory-locating an ancestor. The directory provides an opportunity to understand our ancestor’s historical context. Pictures, advertisements, maps of the city and many more items are often included. The audience will be encouraged to understand each directory’s unique qualities. Examples will be used to illustrate various points.
Teresa Steinkamp McMillin is a Certified genealogist who specializes in German-American and Midwest research, as well as reading German script. She has been interested in genealogy since she was a child and currently has many pleased clients. She presents quality genealogical lectures for local societies and national conferences.
Teresa will also have available for purchase at a discounted price to those in attendance copies of her recently published book titled “Guide to Hanover Military Records, 1514-1866 on Microfilm at the Family History Library”.
The doors to the room will open at approximately 7 PM so participants can pick up any handouts, review books and journals and interact with other participants. Tony Kierna, the STDL genealogist, will start the program at 7:30. Introductions of new participants will occur as well as a brief review of handouts and genealogical matters. It is expected that the guest speaker’s presentation will start at around 7:45-8:00 PM. We will end the session by 9:30 PM.
