  • An Old Fashioned Prairie Social

    A Focus on Societies event sponsored by FamilySearch
    and presented by the Illinois State Genealogical Society

    Come and immerse yourself in the past and present of Illinois. President and Mrs. Lincoln will be on hand to greet you to the rousing music of a Civil War band. The Lincolns will visit with you during the evening as you enjoy period music and indulge in sumptuous desserts.

    Fast forward into the 21st century and take a tour of local society displays to learn what the Illinois genealogical community has to offer. Match wits in a genealogy quiz game, competing as an individual or a society group. Perhaps President Lincoln will even answer a question or two. Before the evening ends, be sure to spin the prize wheel to win something fantastic.

    Tickets: $8

    At 6:00pm to 8:00pm, Wednesday 7th September

    In Springfield Hilton Hotel
