Upcoming genealogy events, new resources, research tips, and other information from Newberry Reference and Genealogy Services.
Come to the Wilmette Public Library on Saturday October 7, 2017 at 11 am to hear Grace’s insightful talk “Tools to Dig Deeper: Probate and Inquest Records.” She’ll show you it’s worth looking for a probate case even if you think your ancestor didn’t have money. Inquests can provide much more detail about the circumstances of accidental and criminal deaths.
Before or after her talk, take advantage of Wilmette Library’s online genealogy resources: Find My Past, HeritageQuest, Newspapers.com, Ancestry Library Edition, Chicago Tribune and New York Times.
The library is located at 1242 Wilmette Avenue, Wilmette, IL 60091, 847-256-5025, www.wilmette.lib.il.us.
