Finding Your Immigrant Ancestors

Most of us will find immigrant ancestors somewhere in our family tree when researching our genealogy. Their travels to the United States and along the path to U.S. citizenship are often documented, but finding these records can be a challenge. Join staff from the Special Collections Division for a discussion of identifying immigrant ancestors and locating passenger lists and naturalization records. As we will be using electronic resources, basic computer skills are recommended.

This class will take place in Computer Lab 2 on the First Floor of Main Library.
