Finding Your Germanic Ancestral Places of Origin - Gail Shaffer Blankenau
To make progress in our German family history, we often want to keep going and “jump the pond” back to the old country. Yet, there is no central record repository for the former Germanic states, and many of the records we need were kept at the parish and local level. Thus, our first step is to find our ancestors’ local place of origin. We will look at a variety of sources in the U. S. and abroad that can guide you to your ancestor’s home place of origin. Examples and case studies will highlight how to approach and interpret these records when you find them.

Researching in Colonial New England - Ann G. Lawthers, Sc.D.
Researching ancestors who lived in colonial New England can be challenging. This webinar begins by tracing settlement patterns, setting the stage for understanding key records and where to find them. For the 17th century, many unique published resources exist to help the family researcher. During the colonial years, several conflicts such as King Philip’s War and the Seven Years War affected settlement and thus the surviving records. The 18th century culminated in the Revolutionary War, but also saw the continued growth of settlement and ultimately resources for the family historian.

Happy Inventions:  The History of Picture Postcards - Katherine Hamilton Smith
The first picture postcards were published for the 1889 Paris Exposition, celebrating the completion of the Eiffel Tower. In America, the first picture postcards were printed for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago – making Illinois the birthplace of the American picture postcard. An early mention of postcards is in the 1870 diary of a Welsh curate, who called them a happy invention.

In 2016, the world's largest public collection of postcards and related materials, the Curt Teich Postcard Archives, was given to the Newberry Library by the Lake County Forest Preserve District. Katherine Hamilton-Smith, the founding curator of the Teich Archives, presents a look at the documentary power and significance of picture postcards. She touches on the Curt Teich Company of Chicago, the role Illinois played in the history and development of postcards, and on the picture postcard as a cultural icon.
This program is presented by a grant from Illinois Humanities. Illinois Humanities is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Illinois General Assembly through the Illinois Arts Council Agency, as well as by contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations.
This program will be presented using Zoom. Participants must register and provide a working email address to receive the login information.
