Debra Dudek, genealogy librarian at the Fountaindale Public Library in Bolingbrook, has made me aware that they will be having a Genealogy Day this Saturday, May 7, 2016 that starts at 9:30 am and lasts until 4 pm CST. They will be offering 3 genealogy programs that day. The day’s programs have reached on site capacity, so you cannot attend in person.
However, Debra has noted that all three program are available for “live” streaming access online for anyone that is interested in attending “online”.
You do not have to register in advance for these “streaming” sessions. There is no cost to you to view the streaming sessions.
The overall “theme” for the day’s programs is “Hunting Down Sensational Stories”.
The three programs that will be taking place and their “start” and “end” times are:
- Session 1 – 9:30 am to 11 am – “Using HistoryLines to Tell Your Family Story” presented by Adam Allgaier
- Session 2 – 11:30 am to 1 pm – “Sensational Deaths and Where to Find Them” presented by Tina Beaird
- Session 3 – 2:15 pm to 4 pm – “Tracking Infamous Ancestors in Court Records” presented by Ray Johnson

Also, Debra has made me aware that even if you cannot participate in the free “streaming” of these programs you will have yet another opportunity to view this material after the fact on YouTube. Just come to the Fountaindale Genealogy Blog a few days after the program and look for access to these YouTube program videos at:
Fountaindale Public Library Genealogy Blog
You will be able to then see the videos of the programs that you were not able to attend in person or participate in during the “live streaming”.
There is even more!
You can go to the Fountaindale Genealogy blog in the above link now and you will be able to access the multi-page PDF handouts for each of these programs RIGHT NOW! So even if you cannot participate in person, or participate in live streaming or have no time to view the recorded videos after the event is over, you can still at least go now and capture the handouts for review at some convenient time for you in the future!
Sounds like you can’t lose!
Sounds very simple!
Participate in the “live” streaming on May 7, 2016.
Missed that or couldn’t then access the recorded videos on YouTube through the Fountaindale Genealogy Blog.
Thank you Debra for sharing all of this and working your magic to make this event so accessible in so many different formats!
