  • | 10:00am - 12:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Genealogy
    - The British Interest Group of Wisconsin & Illinois (BIGWLL) will host Claire Brisson-Banks’ webinar presentation, “The Quest for Your English Roots”. Got English ancestors? Don't miss this webinar by Claire Brisson-Banks, an accredited genealogist (AG) in English research. English civil, church, and census records make doing research back to 1837 feasible. Pre-1837 research requires more skill and a greater knowledge of the variety of little-known resources which can take you back to the 1600’s and earlier. Add to that the variety of Internet resources and English research becomes a joy to perform.

    Born in Rhode Island, Claire has lived in a variety of locations throughout the world with Missouri currently being her home. After raising a large family, she returned to education and completed her BS, MLIS and two AGs to further her career as an academic educator and an in depth researcher. She devotes much of her time in the fields of leadership, management, technology, genealogy, family history, forensics, librarianship and education in a multiplicity of avenues while staying on top of the latest advances in each field.

    The meeting will be held at The Community Church (basement), 5714 Broadway St. Richmond, Illinois (2 blocks west of US Rt. 12) at 10am Saturday, January 21, 2017.
