Last fall the Chicago Genealogical Society started offering beginning genealogy classes that meet quarterly at the Harold Washington Library.
This year we have had two meetings so far, the first was a round table discussion. We had roughly 15 people in attendance that came armed with questions about researching their family. Though our focus was on beginning genealogy, most people had been researching for some time and they were interested in getting over their brick walls.
The second meeting was an in-depth look at FamilySearch and their background.
Our next meeting will be on May 30th at 1pm, the topic is Tips and Tricks for Beginners. It will be hosted by CGS board member, Julie Benson. If you are needing some assistance and just beginning your genealogy research, this will be a good event for you.
