 Truth or Fiction? Unraveling a Family Yarn

 George Teeling was a nineteenth century Irish immigrant in Chicago who was featured in family lore. Researching the tale surrounding him proved that much of the story was false. Research led to many surprising discoveries, perhaps more interesting than the original family tradition. This engaging lecture will discuss the research process; a wide array of sources and overcoming Anglicized names to arrive at the truth of George Teeling and his family.
