CAGGNI proudly presents:

The National Road: America’s First Highway

by Kimberly Nagy  

10:30 a.m. CT

Saturday, 18 June 2022

Attend in-person or virtual

The National Road extended from Cumberland, Maryland to Vandalia, Illinois. It was built in the early 19th century to aid settlers in their westward migration. Many of our Midwestern ancestors traveled on, and settled near, the national road. Join us to learn all about this strategic highway and how your own ancestors may have used it in their westward migration.

Speaker: Kimberly Nagy, MD, holds a Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies and has been researching her ancestry for more than 40 years. A retired trauma surgeon, she now devotes all her time to her passion – genealogy, and is a popular lecturer throughout our region, where she focuses on Lineage Societies, the Great Lakes Staes, and Colonial New England.

In-person or virtual: You get to choose!

CAGGNI (The Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois) is a group of amateur genealogists who are committed to effectively using technology and the internet in support of their research activities.  

Monthly meeting topics cover a broad range of subjects of interest, including software, tools, techniques and methodologies. Additionally, monthly newsletters, support for computer and genealogy issues and internet surname exposure are among the benefits of membership. 

A wide variety of genealogy software packages are used by the members as well online trees and database websites. We are also interested in personal websites, digital photography, handheld apps and other ways to share our family histories.
