The Newberry's collections are particularly strong in Chicago local and family histories. Approximately half of our reference queries concern Chicago or Chicagoans, so feel free to ask us! http://www.newberry.org/genealogy-and-local-history
The Newberry has been collecting genealogy and local history materials since 1887. Staff at the Genealogy and Local History desk can help you explore the Newberry’s rich historical collections.
