The holidays are over, now you have the rest of the winter to hunt for those family ties. A good place to look is the Special Collections Center at Bradley University.
Linda Aylward is a long-time member of the Peoria Genealogical Society. She graduated from Bradley University with a BS in History, and for 31 years she worked for Peoria Public Library. Linda worked exclusively with the local history and genealogy collection at the Main library from 1997- 2012. In August 2012, Linda opted to take early retirement being offered to long standing employees and begin a new career with the Special Collections Center at the Bradley University Library. Now that she has had almost a year and a half to get her feet wet at Bradley, she will present a program about materials in Special Collections which may interest genealogists.
