Family History Research in Illinois and Wisconsin with Maureen Brady

Saturday, March 6, 2021 -
1:00pm to 3:00pm
The families which came to Illinois and Wisconsin came from varied ethnic backgrounds and created a varied landscape of urban and rural environments. The records which were created by, and about, them reflect that variety, both in type and availability. This presentation will first examine the similarities between Illinois and Wisconsin family history resources, and then look at the unique records of each state, including ethnic, religious and governmental archives and repositories. The discussion will also include a brief review of the history of this part of the "Old Northwest", and how that history has impacted the records which were created.

Class is co-hosted by the DuPage County Genealogical Society.
