Description

Kim Kerrigan’s great uncle, James Schneider, was one of the victims who died as a result of the catastrophic yet historic Iroquois Theater fire that occurred on December 30, 1903, in Chicago and claimed almost 600 lives. When Mr. Kerrigan, as a young man, learned the fate of his mother’s uncle, he decided to learn as much as he could about James Schneider’s interesting life as well as his untimely death.

Now, in “Expanding Your Family Stories,” Mr. Kerrigan will share what he has uncovered about his great-uncle’s story. He also will help you understand the importance of your family history and the memorable stories it can spawn.

In addition, he will provide you with many tips to research the history of your family and make your ancestors' stories come alive. Equally important, Mr. Kerrigan will ensure you have the tools at your disposal to be a more dynamic and accurate storyteller.
