Program: Sunday, January 22, 2017
Program starts 2:00 p.m. at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook.
“Genealogy is Easy, Fascinating, and Fun: How I Found the Feldmans” will be the topic of a presentation by amateur genealogist Steven Flack. The JGSI meeting facilities at Temple Beth-El will open at 12:30 p.m. to accommodate those who want to use or borrow genealogy library materials, get help with genealogy websites or ask genealogical questions before the main program begins at 2 p.m. For more information phone 312-666-0100.
In his presentation, Steven Flack, a mostly self-taught genealogist with only four years of experience, will use his own genealogical journey to vividly illustrate the techniques that can help both novice and experienced family history researchers. He will detail his first approaches and encounters with newfound cousins, and his discoveries from estate and medical files, and will describe research visits to Upstate New York and throughout Chicagoland. Flack will tell compelling stories about what he has learned about his ancestors, some of whom were alleged to have been involved in incidents after their deaths! The techniques he has used are sure to fascinate us all.
