Preserving Your Family History on Family Tree

Rediscover Your WWI Soldier’s Experience

Presented byTina Beaird from the Plainfield Library

Many federal WWI personnel records were destroyed in a National Archives fire in the 1970s. Tina offers ways to locate copies of peripheral federal military records and provides solutions for recreating some of the lost history in these “fire” records by also using local government documents, newspapers and base records.

In addition to sharing fellowship with like-minded genealogists at the monthly meetings, members receive an informative newsletter six time a year. An additional benefit of membership is the opportunity to participate in one of our three writers groups. The groups meet once a month on Mondays: at 10 am, 1:30 pm, and 7 pm. Refer to the event list to the right for times and locations.
                                

We are pleased to partner with both the Glenview and Northbrook libraries. Volunteers are available to help you solve a problem or get started with your genealogy research. Volunteers are available weekly in Glenview and monthly in Northbrook. Contact the libraries for specific hours.

Of course you are welcome to attend one of our monthly meetings and meet others willing to share their expertise.
