Date: 1/19/2013
Start Time: 10:30 AM
End Time: 2:30 PM
 The Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois (CAGGNI), co-sponsored by the Schaumburg Township District Library, will be holding their monthly meeting and program. The guest speakers for the main CAGGNI program will be Lou Szucs and Juliana Smith of Ancestry.com. The title of the program is "Hidden Treasures At Ancestry.com and How To Find Them".

With billions of records at Ancestry.com, some of the richest treasures are sometimes overlooked. This presentation by Loretto (Lou) Szucs and Juliana Smith of Ancestry.com is designed to spark new ideas by highlighting some great collections that donít surface immediately in a general search. Come and discover new databases and learn how to use Ancestry.com most effectively so that you can get the most out of your research time.

Juliana Smith has been with Ancestry.com for 15 years. During that time she has edited Ancestry.com newsletters and as Senior Communications and Education Associate, she has presented webinars, created blogs and participated in other social media for the company. She is a certificate-holder from the Boston University Genealogy Research program.

Loretto (Lou) Szucs has been with Ancestry.com for 20 years, is author and/or editor of more than a dozen books, including The Source, They Became Americans, Chicago and Cook County Research, and she has served on several genealogical society boards, including Illinois State Genealogical Society and the Federation of Genealogical Societies where she is currently serving as a director.

It is expected that the guest speakers will begin their program after the CAGGNI group conducts some society business that should occur between 10:30 AM and 10:50 AM. It is expected that the formal program will conclude by approximately 12:30 PM.

After the formal CAGGNI program, the CAGGNI Family Tree Maker Special Interest Group meeting will occur that should start at approximately 12:30 PM and last until 2:30 PM.

Participants of the first part of the program are not required to participate in the 2nd part of the program unless they have an interest in participating with the Family Tree Maker Special Interest Group.
