One of my library colleagues who is also a participant at our monthly genealogy programs gave me a paper copy of a nice handout she obtained that identifies some key “Chicago” Family History Research Sites.
The brochure was put together by the Chicago Genealogical Society that can be reached online at:
I was able to scan the paper brochure and can now make it available for you to take a look at via a link within this blog right here:
It is a simple little brochure that identifies the following locations in Chicago, IL that genealogy researchers should become aware of as possible resources for their genealogical research. Locations mentioned are:
- Harold Washington Library Center (Downtown Chicago)
- Office of the Cook County Clerk (Downtown Chicago)
- Office of the Cook County Recorder of Deeds (Downtown Chicago)
- Archives of the Clerk of the Cook County Court (Downtown Chicago)
- Newberry Library (Near North Side of Chicago)
- Chicago History Museum (Near North Side of Chicago)
- Illinois Regional Archives Depository (IRAD), Cook County (Far North Side of Chicago)
All of the details for each of the locations noted above are contained in the PDF Brochure Link above.
This simple 2 page guide can be a very nice reminder of locations in Chicago that can be of help to you in any Chicago specific ancestral research you may be doing.
Check it out.
Print it off. (If you print it, set your view to “landscape” rather than “portrait”.)
