Delve into the heartland of America's history with "Farming, Factories, and The Frontier: Midwest Genealogy Basics." The Midwest region is a treasure trove of ancestral stories, and this presentation will guide you through the fundamentals of researching your Midwestern roots.

Raised by two historians, Eleanor Brinsko's passion for discovering and telling the story of her ancestors grew strong in her. Eleanor gained her training while working at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Area Research Center She holds a Bachelors of Music Education from UW-River Falls as well as a Masters in Music History (specializing in radio history) and a Masters in Library and Information Science from UW-Milwaukee.

In 2020, Eleanor was made adjunct professor at University of Wisconsin-Madison’s iSchool where she teaches a 1-credit graduate-level course on genealogy! Her perspective when teaching this course is from both sides of the reference desk: what would a genealogist need from a librarian and what resources does the librarian need in order to help promote genealogical resources in the library.
