Just wanted to let you know that the Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois (CAGGNI) will be having their next program on Saturday, September 16, 2017 starting at 10:30 AM at the Schaumburg Township District Library.
The program is open to any and all interested in learning more about genealogy as well as learning more about this wonderful genealogy group and meeting its members in attendance.
The title of the program is “Hunting for Henry: A Case Study Using Collaterals”. Speaker for the program is Teresa Steinkamp McMillin.
Program description is:
Henry Steren was a German immigrant who lived in Quincy, IL. The U.S. records that were created about him indicate only that he was from the Province of Hanover on Germany. This lecture will deal with how his town of origin and parents were identified in spite of the lack of records naming him. Carefully researching each of his associates and correlating all available evidence reveals the origins of Henry. Use of the Genealogical Proof Standard is demonstrated.
