Creating a Research Plan  :  Stephenson County Genealogical Society is planning a future trip to the genealogical library in Madison  in the near future.  The library strongly urges all genealogist visitors to prepare a research plan in advance of their trip.  This program provides direction on how to create such a plan and make the most of your trip.

Freeport Public Library History Room Resources  :  The library’s Frances Woodhouse History Room has thousands of resources–from the obvious to the somewhat known to the (unintentional) secrets–for genealogists and researchers alike.  Too many for any one person to know without hours of research just on what’s on our shelves, in our files and waiting to be explored!  Come learn about the hidden gems available to all visitors to the History Room  :  some you otherwise wouldn’t know about.  Don’t miss this!

From Over There to Right Here  :  Use military records in surprising ways to fill in genealogical gaps.  The amount of information can be overwhelming or frustratingly gone forever.  Learn about new avenues of military treasures that can take you on wonderfully informative journeys.
