SOCIETY WHITE ELEPHANT SALE

Society members donate to the society genealogical items they no longer need to use and the society sells them at very reasonable prices at our annual white elephant sale.

The Impact of the Great Depression on Rural Families

Presented by:
Carol Awe

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

Carol Awe, one of our very own Society members, was born in Waukegan, graduated from Zion-Benton Township High School and Southern Illinois University, and has lived in this area all her life. After a 35-year career at Abbott Laboratories as a commercial artist and computer graphics designer, she has been our quarterly newsletter editor for the past 7+ years, as well as a past Board member. Carolís genealogical research since the early 1990s has led to some great discoveries.
