Chicago’s success as a vibrant city owes much to the incredible number of immigrant forebears, who came from virtually all points of the globe, like my great-grandparents, to build a better life for themselves and their families.
I'm getting ready for my Jamboree session on doing Chicago genealogical research from afar. In the next few weeks, I’ll be posting information about various Chicago ethnic genealogy resources to consider. And since I’m a librarian, I’ll put them up alphabetically.
Please note: The lists are meant to include resources other than the ones found at the big genealogical sites like FamilySearch, Ancestry, Footnote, and the like. And the lists are by no means exhaustive, so please let me know about additions, corrections, omissions.
I'm planning blog entries on:
African-American Genealogical Resources for Chicago
Bohemian, Czech and Slovak Genealogical Resources for Chicago
Chicago and Illinois Digital Collections
Chicago City Directories Online
Chicago German-Language Newspapers
Chicago German-American Church Records and Cemeteries
Chicago German-American Organizations, Books, and Archives
Chicago Jewish Genealogical Resources
Norwegian Genealogical Resources for Chicago
Polish Genealogical Resources for Chicago
Scottish Genealogical Resources for Chicago
Swedish Genealogical Resources for Chicago
