Happy Birthday, Benny Goodman

I'm listening to a 100th anniversary birthday tribute to Benny Goodman on WDCB's Swing Shift--wonderful music--and then I got to thinking . . . He was born in Chicago.

To view his birth record at FamilySearch Record Search, follow this link, click on his name, and then click to view the image.

Happy Birthday, Ben!

Cool! Nice that your musical and genealogical interests overlap at times.



Classically trained on the instrument that Benny mastered beyond all others, I commend your attention to the greatest performer ever.
