- Our next program is on Thursday, September 10 at 7:30 pm at the Naperville Municipal Center lower level, in the lunch room. The program is The Crash: How One Chicago Family Navigated Personal and Financial Loss During the Great Depression, presented by Pat Biallas. This presentation is a true story of one Chicago family in the 1930s as it struggled with the realities wrought by the Great Depression. Genealogical documents, family lore and photos from the family album are woven together to bring this story to life.

- Check out our updated Local Names Index. We've recently added another 6500 names from Naperville newspapers dating from 1850 to 1943. That brings our total to over 46,000 names of people who lived in Dupage, Kane, and Kendall counties that can be found in local cemeteries, church records, newspapers, and historical documents.
