Learn the challenges of searching for Windy City relations, such as address and street name changes and scores of unindexed newspapers. Then discover some resources family historians often overlook: fire insurance maps, inquest records, and probate cases. Grace will offer copies of her book, Finding Your Chicago Ancestors, after the program.
