The North Suburban Genealogical Society’s January meeting will feature  Dr. Daniel Hubbard presenting: When Life Becomes A Myth: History, Myth and Family Stories.

This is a talk about the reconstruction of a life. An odd and dramatic family tale showed a life slowly being converted to myth over generations. Using genealogy and history to reconstruct what seems to have happened revealed a life that was not so far from the story line of a myth from the very beginning. In the end, it has come full circle from story to research to storytelling.

The society meets at the Northbrook History Museum (1776 Walters Avenue, Northbrook, IL).   Guests are welcome and are invited to bring a friend and enjoy refreshments.

The meeting will be held Saturday, January 11 and begins at 1:00 PM. It is free and open to the public.  Refreshments are served. The meeting room is handicap accessible.
