- Our next program is on Thursday, October 9, at 7:30 pm at the Naperville Municipal Center, lower level, Room B & C. Mike Karsen will present Write Your Family History Now. We genealogists are very good at doing research and collecting many facts about our families. For many of reasons, however, most of us delay publishing the results of this research. Mike Karsen shows how you can publish your findings in books that vary from a simple 30 pages to one that contains detailed biographies and places your family in historical context. Your goal should be to organinize your findings and share them with your family as soon as possible. See Speaker Information.
- Check out our updated Local Names Index. We've recently added another 6500 names from Naperville newspapers dating from 1850 to 1943. That brings our total to over 46,000 names of people who lived in Dupage, Kane, and Kendall counties that can be found in local cemeteries, church records, newspapers, and historical documents.
- Also check out our updated Mike's Index. We've recently added over 1000 new entries.
