Researching Your Illinois Catholic Ancestors (Webinar)  (ISGS Webinars)
8:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Presenter:  Lisa Oberg

Program:  Since Father Jacques Marquette first visited the area that is now Chicago in the later 17th century, Catholic immigrants have been drawin to Illinois. Germans, Pols, Bohemian/Czechs, Italians, and more recently immigrants from Central and South America, have all settled in significant numbers in Illinois, in addition to other ethnic groups. Catholic records can provide invaluable clues for genealogists. This webinar will provide insight into how Catholicism shaped history and discuss how to locate parish records, what you can expect to find and how to interpret records when you do find them.
