So You Want to Join a Lineage Society?
Lineage societies offer the opportunity to honor your ancestor (whether saint, knight, yeoman farmer, or witch), make lasting friendships, participate in activities, and share in their philanthropic missions. What should you consider before choosing a particular society and once you do, what can you do to ensure your application is approved? Our speaker will share her personal experience in successfully applying to more than 50 societies, as well as tips and pet peeves from her time as a Registrar at the national, state, and local levels.

From the Sources' Mouth - Daniel Hubbard
Once we’ve understood that identities can be tricky to reconstruct, how do we piece together the tidbits of information that we find into an actual ancestor? How do we avoid putting together a great-great franken father from the spare parts we find in the documents we dig up? Do we trust what seems to be true, or do we look long and hard into the “source’s mouth.”

The Elgin Genealogical Society is holding meetings at the Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin, Illinois and via Zoom. All meetings are free and there is no need to register to attend.

Additional information about programs and zoom links can be found on the website -

Who Gets Grandma's Yellow Pie Plate? - Bonnie J. Lewis
This presentation provides a great opportunity to explore your options on saving the special pieces of a senior’s life and what to do with the other ‘not-so-cherished’ possessions. We encourage our older family members to put their estate in order (power of attorney, a health care proxy, a will or trust) but what is the missing link? The family history and family artifacts! It can take just two generations for memories of an ancestor to disappear from the memories of our descendants. What happens to the family memories, artifacts, stories, and photographs is really up to you. This program from the University of Minnesota Extension provides people with practical information about the inheritance and transfer of non-titled personal property (such as a treasured pie plate, a favorite workshop tool or fishing rod). It assists families communicate, make decisions, and lessen the conflicts when transferring personal property

Members of CDGS can register for these free meetings on the first of the month for that month's meeting. Non-Members can register (if there are seats remaining) on the 16th of the month for that month's meeting.

Blitzkrieg Genealogy:  How Throwing Out Your Research Plan an Yield Exciting Results - Dina Carson
A standard research plan helps you to focus your research in order to answer a specific question. But what if the search for the answer causes you to miss other information about your ancestors? The blitzkrieg approach allows you to search in a much wider way and what you stumble across can be just as exciting as answering a targeted research question. The blitzkrieg approach is not haphazard, though. It too focuses your research, although in a different way. Combining a standard research plan with a blitzkrieg approach can yield exciting…and unexpected…results.

All guests are welcome – if interested in attending one of our program meetings, please email your ‘request to attend’ to: AurGenSoc@gmail.com within 7 days of the scheduled meeting program date.

The Staff of the U. S. Census - Seema Kenney
Just who was creating the documents genealogists typically turn to first? What rules did they follow? How long did they have to complete their job? How big is an enumeration district? These questions, and more, probably occur to anyone doing extensive research in the U.S. Census reports. This talk reviews the staffing, training, search for accuracy, penalties for non-cooperation, and bureaucracy of the U.S. Census from 1790 through 1950.
