Lifting the Fog: Using DNA to Discover Your Polish and European Ancestors
Date – 19 August 2018 (2pm to 4pm)
Location – Schaumburg Township District Library – 130 S. Roselle Rd, Schaumburg, IL 60193
Attendance at the library is free and open to members and non-members. The presentation will also be offered as a free Webinar to members. To defray costs, non-members will be charged a $10 fee.
Guest Speaker: Jane G. Haldeman
Topic Summary: Due to wars, invasions, partitioning of lands, boundaries and name changes through the generations, DNA may be the only common connection with your ancestors. The cause of war and nation boundary movements may have obscured the paper trail of your ancestors. DNA can give us clues of where to look and what questions to ask.

We’ve completed the third phase, Phase 2.2, of our new search engine launch and now have a total of 33 databases available online. Work has started on the next and final phase, Phase 2.3, of this launch which consists of migrating the Locations/Maps/Towns and Book Review data bases to the new search engine.
The new search engine has been totally redesigned so that it functions exactly as it did on our old website. To accelerate the online availability of the new search engine we focused our efforts on completing the search engine redesign and decided to migrate our collection of databases in four separate phases — Phase 2.0, Phase 2.1, Phase 2.2 and Phase 2.3. Phase 2.3 is underway and will be completed later this year.
We designed the new search process to be a smooth and effective process, but if you experience any issues, please give us feedback and let us know. You can send a note to [email protected]
