by Betsy Armistead and the Village of Schaumburg

I was poking about my parent's house and happened to find this one sitting on their shelf. An entire book about my ancestral lands, complete with a picture of some of my ancestors! Like Seattle's Beacon Hill, this book documents the history of Schaumburg, Illinois via pictures and text. It was fascinating to get a little glimpse as to how my forebears lived, but it was also depressing to read how their way of life was transformed into the type of suburban community wherein I grew up and then left behind. All the more reason to try and get my own copy of the book to enjoy and pass on.
