BIGWILL - British Interest Group of Wisconsin and Illinois
All day seminar with Dr. Dan Hubbard will start at 10 a.m. and finish about 3 p.m. with lunch in between.
"Researching at Appomattox Court House": genealogy through the lens of the Civil War. Civil War era records aren’t just about soldiers and sailors. Before, during and after the war, a wealth of different types of unusual records were produced that speak of that time and tell the story of a whole generation.

"Where the Murderers Roam", Some family stories are far more important than they seem on the surface. Connections to people may be lost, events toned down, rationales forgotten. In this presentation we start with a social disruption (the Civil War), a motivation (The Homestead Act) and the story of a fight between farmers. Then, with some research, we’ll weave it all together and learn that sometimes a simple fight over a fence was something more, something darker.

The fee is $10 per person. Our meeting begins at 10 a.m., with the speaker beginning around 10:30. Lunch which we serve will be in between sessions. The afternoon presentation will last until about 2 p.m. Contact our President, Dick Gilbert at moc.oohay|kcepdrol#moc.oohay|kcepdrol.
