More Chicago Genealogy

While helping a patron with her Chicago genealogy recently, I came across a few other very helpful websites that anyone doing Chicago genealogy should know about and use.

  • The Newberry Library has a great page on Chicago Genealogy. But don’t overlook their research guides page, either, which has many helpful links to researching Chicago history.
  • Anyone researching Chicago ancestors should make a trip to the Wilmette Family History Center. They have an extensive collection of Chicago-related resources. Take a look at their “Research Tools” on the bottom right of their webpage.
  • Many of you with Chicago ancestors also have Polish backgrounds. You will find the website of the Polish Genealogical Society of America (located in Chicago) to be a wealth of information.

Happy Researching!
