All day Genealogy Workshops have been sponsored by the Lake County (IL) Genealogical Society each November since 1993. They are normally held on the first or second Saturday of November.

Workshop 2017

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

The workshop brochure/registration form is available here.
The brochure is legal size (8½" x 14".)  To print it on letter-size paper (8½" x 11"), make sure the page orientation is set to Landscape in Adobe Acrobat, then select either Fit or Shrink Oversized Pages.

We hope to see you all there!
