Resource: Chicago Biography and Industry File


Thanks to Tony's Genealogy Blog at the Schaumburg Township District Library for the heads up to this great resource! The Newberry Library has a 359 page PDF available for free download at http//www.newberry.org/genealogy/cbif.pdf which lists surnames of Illinois ancestors and where they are listed in various biographies. 

Take a few minutes to download this file and then search for your surnames - you might be surprised at what you find!
