BIO

 

            Dan Niemiec is the Italian genealogy correspondent of Fra Noi.  He is co-founder, co-chair and webmaster of the Italian genealogy group called POINTers In Person, Chicago-North chapter.  He has given presentations to local and national genealogy conferences and societies.  His Italian ancestral lines go back to the mid-late-1600s, and his Polish lines go back to the mid 1700s.  By tracing descendant lines, he has found over 62,000 relatives, the result of 17 years of original research.  To subsidize his genealogy, he works full-time as a computer network administrator in Mundelein, IL.

 

 

INFO

 

Dan’s specialties include Italian research, Chicago research, Family Tree Maker and internet genealogy.  He coached high school speech team for 10 years (“extemporaneous speaking” and “original comedy” events), which has helped make his presentations not only informative but also entertaining.  He regularly updates any PowerPoint files with the latest information and rarely gives the same speech twice.  He always takes questions throughout his talks (not just at the end) and comes prepared with transparencies in case there is a technological problem with PowerPoint or the equipment.
