Coming to America: Finding Your Immigrant Ancestors
Wednesday, 01 September 2010, 8:00 PM Eastern (New York)
Your immigrant ancestor’s trip to America is among the most compelling chapters in your family history. Join me September 1st for a free online class to learn what you need to know to identify your ancestor in passenger arrival records. We’ll discuss places you can find the details you need, and how to discover the story of your ancestor’s voyage to America in the records you find.
We’ll have a brief Q&A session following the presentation, and then we’ll move the conversation over to our Facebook page to continue the conversation for a bit more.
