I received the following publicity statement from the Polish Genealogical Society of America (PGSA) about their upcoming meeting that will take place at the Fountaindale Public Library, 300 W. Briarcliff Road, Bolingbrook, IL on Sunday, February 21, 2016 starting at 2 PM.
The PGSA is inviting anyone interested in Polish genealogy to attend the program and meet other members of the society in attendance.
The formal presentation is titled “The Family Tapestry: Integrating Proof Arguments into the Genealogical Narrative”. The presenter is Jeanne Larzalere Bloom.
If you plan to attend the program in person, please note that you will need to register that intent with the Fountaindale Public Library either by registering through their website at Fountaindale Public Library Program Registration or by calling them at 630-759-2102 and have someone from the library assist you with the registration process.
The program is also being presented as a “live” webinar for those that cannot attend in person. The PDF flyer noted below provides information on how to register for the webinar if you would like to participate in that manner.
As family researchers we often encounter problems. There can be conflicting information about identity, dates, and places. We encounter situations where no one document plainly states a parent-child relationship. We need to use multiple documents that, after thoughtful analysis, lead us to a conclusion. After a reasonably exhaustive research for records and information, we must assemble the evidence into a proof argument. Using a case study, this presentation demonstrates how to successfully weave a proof argument into a family tapestry.
Jeanne Larzalere Bloom is a certified genealogist and full-time
researcher specializing in Chicago and Cook County research, forensic genealogy, problem solving, and multi-generational family histories. Her clients are international.
On behalf of the Department of the Army, Ms. Bloom also searches for and identifies family members of unaccounted for servicemen from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.
There is ample parking and light refreshments will be served.
The society has recently been having its quarterly programs at a variety of locations in Chicago and suburbs over the recent years rather than just at its main location in the city of Chicago, IL.
Here is a PDF flyer I received from the society that describes the program for the gathering:
