Family history researchers often come to a “brick wall” as to what happened to an ancestor. In some cases, those ancestors were involved with one kind of disaster or another. Disasters took many people to an unidentifiable and unknown end.
The Chicago Genealogical Society will be sponsoring a bus tour Notable Chicago Disasters That Affected Your Ancestor’s Lives. This will be a full day Genealogy Bus Tour with tour guide Craig Pfannkuche on Saturday, October 1, from 9:30am – 4:00pm
