LCIGS is excited to announce the speakers for our 2017 Fall Workshop! John Philip Colletta, Ph.D. is one of America’s most popular genealogical lecturers. Knowledgeable, experienced and entertaining, he resides in Washington, D.C. For twenty years, while laying the foundation for his career in genealogy, he worked half-time at the Library of Congress and taught workshops at the National Archives. John will give four lectures: Passenger Arrival Records, Colonial Times to Mid-20th Century; U.S. Military Pension and Bounty Land Records, 1776-ca. 1916; U.S. Military Service Records, 1775-ca. 1916; and Only a Few Bones: Case Studies in Assembling Sources to Reconstruct Real-Life Events.
Michelle Bray Wilson will give lectures on DNA and French-Canadian genealogy. An engineer by training, Michelle’s DNA expertise comes largely through self-study. Her goal in presentations is to make complex topics plainly understood.
The workshop will be held Saturday, November 11, 2017. at the Lake Villa Township West Campus (formerly Gavin North School), 37850 N. Ill. Rt. 59, Lake Villa, IL 60046
