Our Next Genealogy Program Is Coming Up On Tuesday Evening April 14, 2015 At 7:30 PM

Hi Everyone!

I thought I would post this reminder of our next upcoming Genealogy Program at the Schaumburg Township District Library.

There is no pre-registration required in order to attend the program.  There is no fee charged to attend.  Anyone can attend this program.  You do not have to be a library card holder with the Schaumburg Township District Library in order to attend.

Here are the details of our upcoming program for Tuesday evening, April 14, 2015:

Sandra Trapp Feb 24 2014The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Sandra Trapp. Sandra will present a program titled “Using FamilySearch.org”.

FamilySearch.org is the largest, free genealogy resource on the internet. This program will cover why you want to have an account; tips for searching the records; creating and editing your Family Tree; adding photos, stories and documents, accessing FamilySearch’s digitized books, how to get help, searching the catalog and ordering film and a few other features of interest.

Sandra Trapp has provided genealogy programs for various local genealogy organizations and libraries. She volunteers at the Naperville Family History Center as its Resource Chairman and is a former Director of the Genealogical Forum of Elmhurst and CAGGNI program chair. Sandra has been researching her ancestors, her husband’s son-in-law’s and friends’ families for 16 years.

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.

For further information contact Tony Kierna at 847-923-3390.
