Using U.S. Records to Find Your Immigrant’s Link to the Old Country – Sara Allen, Discovery Center.
Don’t skip important steps in finding your ancestor’s home village. Before crossing the pond and searching in European records, fully investigate American records about the immigrant and his family. Topics in this presentation will include starting with U.S. records and moving back in time to the immigrant, finding records of the journey to America, and finally, identifying the village of origin in Europe.
