May 12 – “Tracing Immigrant Ancestors”
A webinar on CD presented by Lisa Alzo, a teacher of online genealogy courses for Family Tree University and the National Institute for Genealogical Studies.
America is a nation of immigrants, comprised of people who left home to find a better life for themselves and their families. Tracking down your immigrant ancestors can often be a daunting task.
This session will show you tips and tricks for locating and searching passenger lists and other key immigration documents both on and offline to help you trace your roots.
June 9 ––“They WERE here - Where did they go? Using state and county border changes and migration routes to trace ancestors”
This presentation by Jackie Reiss, a local genealogy instructor, consists of two parts.
During the formative years of our country, borders of states and counties were fluid. Because of boundary changes, it was possible for a person to be enumerated in different towns, counties or states but have never moved. It is also possible that records for your ancestor may exist in more than one county/state. Several examples will be used to demonstrate the effect of those changes.
The second part of the presentation will focus on the major migration routes that were used by our ancestors who were searching for cheaper land and a new start.
