Add to Calendar 2021-02-09 19:00:00 2021-02-09 20:30:00 America/Chicago Join Live: Explore U.S. Church Records For Genealogy to Find Family Online

Church records contain more than just baptisms, marriages and deaths. They provide many surprises, including clues to much more information, including town of origin and immigration information, how active families were in their church, and their financial situation. Churches predate government and often have information on under-represented people: women, minorities, immigrants and young children. Learn how to identify your ancestor‘s place of worship, access surviving records and solve problems such as maiden names and overseas birthplaces. Let's learn to find new and exciting information in church records!

Guest presenter Jacqueline Krieps Schattner has been actively researching her family’s ancestors since 1996. She volunteered at the Family History Center in Schaumburg for 15 years, teaches genealogy for Districts 211 and 214, teaches beginning genealogy at area libraries and is active in several genealogy societies. Jacquie received her B.S. degree from the University of Illinois. She is a retired school secretary, looking forward to having more free time to pursue new genealogy research. Living in Palatine, she has been happily married for 38 years, has three grown children, two sons-in-law and five adorable grandchildren.
