 Tuesday, October 20, 2015

McLean County Museum of History
2nd Floor Courtroom


PROGRAM:  Under That Rock:  Look What I Found!
A Genealogical Journey of Discovery
SPEAKER:  James Weirman, MCGS Librarian and Board Member


Jim and his wife Joanna have long researched their family lines. Jim has compiled a slide show of a selection of discoveries over the years, from the 19th century back to the 15th century.  The stories span the globe, with anecdotes from the colonial U.S., Quebec, Australia,  England,  France,  Germany, and Switzerland. Jim hopes that his experience encourages people to keep digging and looking UNDER THAT ROCK to see what they might find.  This will be a very interesting program.
