Downers Grove Public Library -

After understanding the personal value of connecting with our roots, we will explore what is unique about Jewish genealogy, what information we are looking for, and how to get started.

As Jews moved Westward, Chicago became the second largest center for them to settle starting in the mid-1800s. There are a large number of Jewish Genealogists around the world whose families were part of those early settlers. Presenter Mike Karsen is dedicating his genealogy practice to helping those individuals.

Mike inspires people to create family legacies by helping them to:

  • Understand the history of the Jews of Chicago
    Trace their journey to Chicago
    Discover where and how they lived in Chicago

Mike Karsen's expertise spans over 20 years of actively working on Jewish Genealogy in Chicagoland. He has spoken at most of the major Jewish Organizations in Chicagoland and at the International Conferences (IAJGS) on Jewish Genealogy. He has served as President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois and has published a website “Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Chicagoland” on JewishGen.
