Researching Your Immigrant Ancestors Before 1820

Tracing ancestors before 1820 can be extremely difficult due to a lack of documentation and limited accessibility of surviving records. Focusing on European immigrants to the eastern seaboard, a librarian from the Special Collections Division will provide an overview of strategies and sources commonly used in researching early immigrants. Please note: This genealogy class is geared toward those with intermediate research skills. Because electronic resources are used, basic computer skills are recommended.

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

To register, please call or email the Special Collections Division.
