Friday, June 9: NGS Banquet Speaker, Craig Pfannkuche

He’s got a booming voice, he’s got an eye for detail and he’s not afraid to get dirty! While we dine on roasted sirloin Friday night at the NGS Banquet, we will be delighted by Chicago’s own Craig Pfannkuche, as he presents “Excavating Grandma’s Privy for Family History Data.” This is sure to be an entertaining topic, and is a popular program in the Chicago area. Born and raised in Chicago, Craig received both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts from Northern Illinois University. He taught high school American history and anthropology for thirty years.

He is currently the president of Memory Trail Research, Inc., on the Board of Directors for the Chicago Genealogical Society, the Genealogical Archivist for the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Historical Society, and he’s on the Board of Directors for the McHenry County (Illinois) Genealogical Society.

With whatever spare time he has, Craig is a frequent lecturer on a variety of genealogical topics. He has also written several articles for historical journals and society newsletters.

Come learn what you might find in Grandma’s privy (besides the obvious!) and how it can enhance your family history research.
