Another Genealogy Saturday at the Newberry

This Saturday, join us at 9:30 am for the monthly Genealogy and Local History Orientation. This event is especially helpful for those new to genealogical research or new to research at the Newberry.

After the Reading Room closes at 1 pm, head down the hall to the monthly meeting of the Chicago Genealogical Society, where Steve Szabados will present  Researching Your Chicago Ancestors at 1:30 pm.

“This 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, neighborhood histories, and many more. The sources that are reviewed will include online websites, genealogy collections held at major libraries, collections at local libraries, and collections compiled by area genealogical societies.”

Both events are free!


Genealogy orientations are held the first Saturday of every month in 2013, at 9:30 am, at the Newberry. No reservations are required. Orientations are free and open to the public. The next orientation will be Saturday, March 2nd, at 9:30 am.
