The Great War is one of the most well-documented conflicts in history, but how much do you really remember from your history classes?  As an early celebration of Armistice Day, genealogist and author Debra M. Dudek will highlight a few of the little known and interesting aspects of World War I and how they have shaped our modern world.

Dudek is Head of Adult and Teen Services at the Fountaindale Public Library District in Bolingbrook, IL.  She is an alumna of the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, and is the author of the World War I Research Guide: Tracing American Military and Non-Combatant Ancestors.


A cash bar will be available along with a small selection of food. Coffee is complimentary.

This event is part of the First Division Museum’s popular series, A Date with History. The monthly programs feature an evening of lively discussion with authors, panelists, historians, and special speakers.

*We regret to inform you that our previously scheduled  Date With History speaker, Isak Gasi, is no longer able to attend.
