Genealogy Volunteers

We are pleased to introduce our two genealogy room volunteers, Barbara Coughlin and Susan Groff.

Barbara will be in the Genealogy Room on most Mondays from 1 pm to 4 pm. She has been working on her family history for five years, and is knowledgeable about US and UK records. Barbara is experienced in using online genealogy databases such as Ancestry, and with Family Tree Maker software for managing her family trees. She is also an experienced vital records indexer, and plans to help us index our historic Glenview newspapers.

Susan Groff has been volunteering at the Library for several years on our Glenview Obituary Index. Susan updates the index, which now contains more than 11,000 entries.  She will staff the  Genealogy Room from 10 am to 2 pm on most Thursdays.

Call the Genealogy Room at (847) 729-7500 x2709, or stop by.

Welcome, Susan and Barbara!
