Presented by Mike Karsen.

This presentation provides an overview of all records and resources that are useful to the Jewish researchers in search of their Chicagoland roots. We begin with a brief history of the Jews of Chicago. The seminar mostly concentrates on the uniquely Jewish resources such as cemeteries, funeral homes, life in Jewish Chicago which includes online publications which are searchable. It also covers the naturalization process, location/residence records, and legal documents including wills and probate files. 

Presented by professional speaker and genealogist, Mike Karsen. Mike Karsen is a member of the Association of  Professional Genealogists (APG), the Genealogical Speakers Guild (GSG), and is Past President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois. He has presented over 300 talks on genealogy topics locally, nationally, and internationally including Newberry Library and Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership in Chicago. Mike is the author of the JewishGen website "Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Chicagoland" and has published articles on genealogy.
