Come early to review genealogical materials. At 7:45 p.m. guest presenter Marsha Peterson-Maass shares 10 solutions to common genealogical brick walls that most genealogists encounter, including search strategies, helpful record types, networking tips and more.
Marsha got her start in genealogy in high school when she entered a family history project in the State of Illinois History competition and tied for state champion. Her first formal training in genealogy was at The Newberry Library, Chicago, in a beginner’s class that she now teaches. She is the author of the Fundamentals of Genealogy® textbook series, and today, along with teaching and lecturing on a wide range of topics.

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.
