Try-it Illinois
October 8, 2020 – Tina Beaird

During October and November, the state of Illinois makes available hundreds of paid databases. This trial is to give libraries and residents the opportunity to try these resources to test which might be useful to add a paid subscription. With hundreds available it can be overwhelming. Tina Beaird will showcase those most useful for genealogy and history research. Come and learn how to make the most of this 2-month opportunity and decide which products to recommend for your library.

Tina Beaird is the owner of Tamarack Genealogy and is the Genealogy/Local History Librarian at the Plainfield Public Library. She lectures nationally on military research, genealogical methodology, Scottish records, and archival preservation. She is a governing board director of the Illinois State Genealogical Society, the Northern Illinois Historical League and the Illinois State Historical Records Advisory Board. Tina volunteers her time with several local historical and genealogical societies, and occasionally finds time to research her own family tree, which she has been pursuing for over 20 years.
