The Chicago 1893 World's Columbian Exposition: What Remains and New Links to H. H. Holmes 

Presented by Ray Johnson

 The 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition - What still exists?

From May 1, 1893 to October 30, 1893  Chicago was the focal point of the entire world! Never before and arguably never since has any World’s Fair been as grand. A quick history of the White City and where you can still find what remains!

H.H. Holmes and new links to Chicago and the White City

Ever since Erik Larsen’s "Devil in The White City", the murderous, swindler H.H. Holmes has been linked to the White City of 1893.

In addition to sharing fellowship with like-minded genealogists at the monthly meetings, members receive an informative newsletter six time a year.

We are pleased to partner with both the Glenview and Northbrook libraries. Be sure to stop by and become familiar with their genealogy resources. If you need help getting started with your genealogy or solving a genealogical problem come to a monthly meeting and meet others willing to help you.
