Organizing and Writing Your Family History

Steve Szabados will present “Organizing and Writing Your Family History” at the next meeting of the Northwest Suburban Council of Genealogists. The meeting will be held on Saturday, January 7, 2012 at 10:00 am at The Arlington Heights Senior Center, 1801 W Central Rd., Arlington Heights, IL

A Copy of Family Tree Maker 2012 will be raffled off.

Arrive at 9:30 AM, prior to the presentation, for casual discussion or to exchange information with others who enjoy genealogy.

The presentation discusses a process and format that helps make research efforts more efficient and makes the results easier to read, digest, and share. Your information will “come alive” for everyone. Please note that this presentation is not a "How-To" on publishing a book or organizing your file cabinet. It instead will discuss how to organize the information extracted from your documents and family oral history.

Steve Szabados is a retired project manager with a Bachelor of Science degree and an MBA who started researching his ancestors in 2004. He has given numerous presentations to groups in Illinois and Wisconsin and wants to share his passion for Family History. He is a member of the Polish Genealogical Society of America, Illinois State Genealogical Society and also a genealogy volunteer at the Arlington Heights Library. His roots are Polish and Hungarian plus he has also had success researching Slovenian and Bohemian records.
