Records like birth certificates and marriage licenses are commonly used by genealogists, but knowing about a city’s unique records and where to find them can make tracking elusive ancestors even easier. This one-day seminar will cover records, research repositories, online tools, and strategies specific to tracking down former Chicagoans. Although not meant as an introduction to genealogy, the seminar is open to researchers of all levels.
One session. E – $85, R – $93.50
