Fall seems to be the best time to take a genealogy class, attend a family history webinar, or visit a local historical museum. So many places seem to be offering interesting opportunities to genealogists right now! The Glenview Public Library is offering some genealogy classes.
The Glenview Public Library is located in Glenview, Illinois. It has a Genealogy and Local History Room that contains a unique collection of genealogy and local history materials. The room is staffed by volunteers who can help you with your research. Be sure to check the Room Schedule before you visit.
Glenview Public Library is now a FamilySearch affiliate library. That means you can access FamilySearch’s circulating microfilms of historic and genealogical records.
Glenview Public Library is also the home of the Lundberg Collection. In 1968, local genealogist Gertrude Lundberg donated her personal genealogy materials to the Library. The collection contains rare genealogy books, periodicals, family histories, and Mrs. Lundberg’s personal research.
In addition, there is also a vast collection of resources about local Glenview History. This includes historic photographs and documents of the area, family trees of the founding families of Glenview, an index of obituaries from local sources, clippings from local newspapers, Glenview newspapers on microfilm, local telephone directories, and an index of all the people and places that can be found in the library’s local history materials.
