 The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Teresa S. McMillin. Teresa will present a program titled "Hunting for Henry: A Case Study: Sibling Research".

Henry Steren was a German immigrant who lived in Quincy, Illinois. The United States records that were created about him indicate only that he was from the Province of Hanover in Germany. This lecture will detail how his town of origin and parents were identified, in spite of the lack of records naming him. Carefully researching each of his associates and correlating all available evidence reveals the origins of Henry. Use of the Genealogical Proof Standard is demonstrated.

Teresa Steinkamp McMillin is a Certified Genealogist who specializes in German-American and Midwest research, as well as reading German script. She has been interested in genealogy since she was a child and currently has many pleased clients. She presents quality genealogical lectures for local societies and national conferences.

Teresa was the 2007 recipient of the National Genealogical Society's Home Study Course, which she has completed and for which she is now a grader. She is a multi-year attendee of the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research and the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy; and has taken college-level German courses. Teresa is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the National Genealogical Society, as well as many local genealogical societies. She is a co-president and webmaster of the Northwest Suburban Council of Genealogists in Mount Prospect, Illinois.

Teresa lives in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. She is happily married and has two junior-high-aged children: a boy and a girl.

CG or Certified Genealogist is a service mark of the Board for Certification of Genealogists, used under license by board certified genealogists after periodic evaluation.

The doors to the room will open at approximately 7 PM so participants can pick up any handouts, review books and journals and interact with other participants. Tony Kierna, the STDL genealogist, will start the program at 7:30. Introductions of new participants will occur as well as a brief review of handouts and genealogical matters. It is expected that the guest speaker's presentation will start at around 7:45-8:00 PM. We will end the session by 9:30 PM.
