Google for Genealogists presentation – August 25, 2012 – Swedish American Museum, Chicago

Nordic Family Genealogy Center

On Saturday, Aug. 25, the Nordic Family Genealogy Center will host a special lecture with Thomas MacEntee, nationally-known genealogy author, educator, and speaker. He will present on using Google search engine when conducting genealogy research. Most genealogists only use 10% or less of the resources behind Google when it comes to research. Learn how to use the other 90%!

Registration for this event takes place at 10:15 am, and the program will start at 10:30 a.m. Free to Museum and Nordic Family Genealogy members, $10 for non-members.

Reservations requested. Phone the Museum at 773.728.8111. For more information, please visit our website, www.SwedishAmericanMuseum.org/genealogy. You may also e-mail genealogy@samac.org.
