Think there’s no way to research Chicago before 1871? Think the Fire burned yoru chances for discovering what Chicago was like in its early days? All is not (and was not) lost. This presentation will introduce you to a gold mine of materials. Maps, diaries, church records, newspapers, and sheet music are just a few of the hot items you’ll find out about. This talk is an abbreviated version of a seminar presented at the Newberry Library by Matt Rutherford and Ginger Frere.
