RESEARCHING YOUR GERMAN ROOTS: A WORKSHOP BY LARRY NERGE

April 6, 2019

Saturday, May 11, 2019
2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Rasmussen Room
Schaumburg Township District Library
130 S. Roselle Road, Schaumburg

The Schaumburg Township District Library is delighted to welcome back Larry Nerge, a direct descendent of the area’s rural German families.

In this interactive workshop, he will guide you through his explorations, techniques, methods of sharing his finds, and observations of the family relationships of our German predecessors.

Larry has been researching his family history for 42 years and has compiled a database of over 141,000 individuals.  His ancestors came from Schaumburg, Germany and he has traced many of his direct and indirect German families going back 300 to 400 years.  Moving forward in America, he has tied together the German families in our area.

It is a wonderful opportunity to learn, ask questions, share your genealogy and, possibly, meet up with some of the branches of your family tree.  We hope to see you there!

To register, please go to the library’s event page.

For additional info, contact Jane Rozek, Local History Librarian at jrozek@stdl.org or 847-923-3331.

SCHAUMBURG TOWNSHIP HISTORICAL SOCIETY OPEN HOUSE

Constructed in 1872–and first called Sarah’s Grove School, it is believed to have been the first of five public schools in Schaumburg Township.

For 82 years, the building served as a one-room schoolhouse, and was the last active one room schoolhouse in District 54.

With the widening of Schaumburg Road, the building was saved from demolition and temporarily placed on the grounds of the Town Square Shopping Center in 1979. It was permanently relocated to the St. Peter Lutheran Church property in September, 1981. It has been fully restored as a museum and is under the auspices of the Schaumburg Township Historical Society.
