2011 Grant Goes to Elgin Area Historical Society

The Elgin Genealogical Society is pleased to announce the 2011 Chester A. Bowser Grant recipient is the Elgin Area Historical Society (EAHS). 

This grant of $1000 will be used to index corporate and employee newsletters from Sherman Hospital, The Illinois Watch Case Company, Chicago Rawhide and The Elgin National Watch Company. 

Once indexed, the information will be posted on the EGS or EAHS website.

We are proud to assist the EAHS in this effort which will provide genealogists researching the Elgin area more information on their ancestors without leaving their homes. Once found on the index, copies of the actual articles will be able to be requested through either EGS or EAHS.
