Join us this Saturday at 9:30 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 oriention, stay and start your research in the General Reading Rooms where the reference staff will be available to assist you.
After the reading rooms close, join the Chicago Genealogical Society for their monthly meeting. This month’s presentation is “Stories of the Lost,” with genealogist Jennifer Holik. This program is a continuation of “Finishing the Story,” presented in September. Explore the records available to tell the stories of those who lost something due to the war, never returned from the war or returned, but didn’t fully return. The meeting starts at 1:30.
