Sat., June 12: “My Ancestor Was a Farmer” with Jane Haldeman (via Zoom; see details)

June 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Our guest speaker Jane G. Haldeman is a Chicago-area based professional genealogist and owner of It’s Relative with more than 25 years of research experience. She lectures on a wide range of topics both locally and nationally. She was the National Co-Chair for the Federation of Genealogical Societies 2019 Conference in Washington, D.C. She is a former president of the Illinois State Genealogical Society and is the author of A Genealogist’s Guide to Springfield, Illinois. Many of our ancestors were farmers and they left valuable records, including deeds and probate records. From 1937 to 1946, the Farmer’s Home Administration gave low-interest loans to small farmers. These records are in the local branches of the National Archives in Record Group 96. The records include family records and information about the farm. Agricultural census records, newspaper articles and obituaries, trade papers, and other agricultural records can give a picture of your ancestor’s life.


Haldeman’s handout for this program is at https://ssghs.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/My-Ancestor-was-a-Farmer-May-2021-Handout.pdf
