In lieu of our regular meeting, the Northwest Suburban Genealogy Society is offering a virtual presentation by Tony Burroughs called “The Nature of Genealogy”.  This presentation will cover understanding history, research, repositories, records, theory development, results analysis and publishing findings. It is woven around a case study discovering a new ancestor by an experienced genealogist.

Tony Burroughs has been on the genealogy scene for over thirty-five years. You may have seen him on Oprah’s Roots on PBS with Henry Louis Gates or with Smokey Robinson on Who Do You Think You Are?
