Space still available for Genealogy Day on Saturday May 2, 2015! – Follow Friday

There’s still time to register for our amazing Genealogy Day!   Join us our fantastic free program on Saturday, May 2 from 9:30 am to 4 pm and learn more about the following genealogical topics:

Digging for Coal Mining Genealogy Resources with Richard Joycecoal mining
We’ll examine the coal mining industry in northern Illinois and then discuss a variety of genealogical sources dealing with miners and their communities.

Researching Religious Records with Maureen Brady
Maureen will provide a brief overview of religious records for genealogy research. The program will cover ethnic, denominations, with an emphasis on British migration to North America and North American religious records.

Gifting Genealogy Research to the Next Generation
Have you thought about what will happen to your genealogy research after you are gone? After you’ve done all that genealogy research, it is human nature to want to see it passed on and not discarded as if it had no meaning or importance.  This panel discussion will help you plan your genealogy estate, bequeath your research, set up gifts in a will, find donation depositories, and ensure what you’ve compiled isn’t left in a garbage dump.

Digital Photo Restorations
Need help with a photo restoration?  Our Studio 300 staff will be available help scan and digitally restore two of your photos.  Don’t forget to bring a flash drive so you can save and bring your digital photos home with you!

Society Booths
We have several groups exhibiting at the conference, including the Isle a la Cache Chapter of the NSDAR, the DuPage County Genealogical Society, and the Bolingbrook Historic Preservation Commission.  You will want to set aside some time to see what new and exciting genealogy projects and programs are happening in our area!

Order Your Lunch
Skip the line and order your Genealogy Day lunch from Brooks Cafe using their Box Lunch Order Form.   If you forget your lunch on the day of our program, you can place a lunch order at Brooks Cafe during morning registration. Some food selections may be limited, so you’ll want to place your order before 9:30 am!

I am at your service to assist with questions before, during, and after the program! Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need anything! You can contact me by phone at (630) 685-4201 or by e-mail at
