Steve Szabados of the Computer-Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois (CAGGNI) will present "Researching your Chicago Ancestors." The program reviews what sources are available and where they can be found. Databases discussed will include vital records, church records, state records, federal records, employment records, histories of neighborhoods and many more.
Sources that will be reviewed will be online websites, genealogy collections held at major libraries, collections held at local libraries, and collections compiled by area genealogical societies.
The meeting is free and open to the public. It will be held this month on August 16 at the Wheaton Public Library, 225 N. Cross St., Wheaton 60187 from 10:30 to 12:30.
