Luxembourgers on the Prairie: Researching your Luxembourg Ancestors  (Webinar)
  • Presenter: Lisa Oberg
  • Date: September 12, 2017, 8:00 pm Central
  • Description: There are more people of Luxembourg-descent living in the Midwest than currently living in Luxembourg today, yet this immigrant group is often invisible as they frequently became absorbed in German-speaking communities following their arrival. Chicago has several historically Luxembourg neighborhoods and Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa, among other states, all have unique distinctly Luxembourg settlements. This webinar will explore resources for locating your Luxembourg ancestor in the U.S., identifying their ancestral village and tips for researching Luxembourg's multilingual records.

Ephemera: Genealogy Gold  (Webinar)
8:00 pm
  • Presenter: Sharon S. Atkins
  • Date: December 12, 2017, 8:00 pm Central
  • Description: Valuable clues about an ancestor’s life are often found by locating different forms of ephemera as well as researching various categories of ephemera. Ephemera can provide a glimpse into the world of your ancestor; whether you find an old postcard, a newspaper article, a graduation program, or something as wonderful as a diary, you can instantly be transported back in time and place to experience your ancestor’s life. Examples of how I researched using ephemera in writing two books; including one which centered on Iowa, Nebraska and Illinois research.
