 This is the monthly meeting of the Elgin Genealogical Society where Grace DuMelle will present “Tools to Dig Deeper: Probate and Inquest Records.” She will tell us why it’s worth looking for a probate case even if you think your ancestor didn’t have money. You can find relatives you didn’t know existed, a listing of property and furnishings, and bills from service providers. When you see a coroner’s signature on a death certificate, or have a newspaper account of an accident, obtain the inquest to open a fascinating window on the circumstances of the death. ----- Ms. DuMelle has been a professional researcher since 1995, helping clients from all over the United States and several foreign countries. She is on staff at the Newberry Library in Chicago and has experience on both sides of the reference desk -- as a staffer and as a researcher, and is the author of “Finding Your Chicago Ancestors”.
