I was thrilled to have D. Joshua Taylor
from PBS TV show “Genealogy Road Show” (Tuesday 7 pm)
as my teacher at the McHenry County Illinois Genealogical Society Conference
on Saturday, July 9, 2016
At McHenry County College, Crystal Lake, Illinois.
He speaks twice as fast as on the show. I learned a lot from one of the experts.
It was fun that some of our ancestors had the same routes: Pennsylvania to Ohio to Illinois.
And they lived in the same communities – Freeport, Illinois and Beloit, Wisconsin.
I was able to help him by giving him my business card with the digitization link to Beloit WI early history books, so that he could look remotely. “beloitlibrary.org”
Great day networking with others too.
See WCIGS post about their upcoming programs.
This is the second year I went to their conference – always good.
I heard Thomas MacEntee last year.
(And other speakers.)
