CAGGNI Proudly Presents

Bringing Life to Our Ancestors: Manuscript Collections

by Jeanne Larzalere Bloom

Saturday, 19 August 2017
10:30 a.m.

Schaumburg Township Public Library

If our genealogical research is limited to the WhoWhen and Where, we compile a collection of skeletons. To answer the interesting questions beyond the What, the Why and the How, we can use manuscript collections. These underutilized collections bring our ancestors to life and put flesh on their bones.

Jeanne Larzalere Bloom, CG, is a full-time professional researcher specializing in Chicago and Cook County research, forensic genealogy, problem solving and multi-generational family histories.

On behalf of the Department of the Army, Jeanne searches for and identifies family members of unaccounted for servicemen from World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

Jeanne is trustee and president of the Board for Certification of Genealogists.

CAGGNI (The Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois) is a group of amateur genealogists who are committed to effectively using technology and the internet in support of their research activities. 

Monthly meeting topics cover a broad range of subjects of interest, including software, tools, techniques and methodologies. Additionally, monthly newsletters, support for computer and genealogy issues and internet surname exposure are among the benefits of membership. 

A wide variety of genealogy software packages are used by the members as well online trees and database websites. We are also interested in personal websites, digital photography, handheld apps and other ways to share our family histories.
