    Speaker:   Gail Lukasik

    Topic:“A Family Story of Race and Racial Passing ”

    Offering insights into issues surrounding the complex history of racial passing in the United States, “Gail Lukasik’s book “White Like Her” tells the story of her mother’s passing, Gail’s struggle with the shame of her mother’s choice, and Gail’s subsequent inner journey of self-discovery and redemption.  In the historical context of the Jim Crow South, she explores her mother’s decision to pass, how she hid her secret even from my father, and the price she paid for choosing whiteness.

    • Northbrook Public Library, 1201 Cedar Lane, Northbrook

    Dr. Dan Hubbard

    Topic: “Murder in the Family”

    Where the Murderers Roam, Some family stories are far more important than they seem on the surface. Connections to people may be lost, events toned down, rationales forgotten. In this presentation we start with a social disruption (the Civil War), a motivation (The Homestead Act) and the story of a fight between farmers. Then, with some research, we’ll weave it all together and learn that sometimes a simple fight over a fence was something more, something darker.

    • Glenview Public Library, 1930 Glenview Road, Glenview

    Jennifer Holik

    Topic: “Finding the Answers: WORLD WAR II ONLINE”

    One place many people begin research for their World War II service member is online. While most of the records you need to reconstruct service history are not available online, you can find clues and unit or contextual information to add to your soldier’s story. Many people also connect with living family members of soldiers buried in ABMC cemeteries through online resources.
    In this program, Jennifer will:

    ·         Explain some myths and common questions about online research.

    ·         Explain how to research using the collections on Ancestry.com and Fold3.com.

    ·         Discuss other places you can find information online and how that can lead to offline resources.

    ·         Explain where and how to connect with other researchers or European grave adopters.

    ·         Discuss using social media to locate information.

    The tips you learn in this program will help you with any digitized record set
