Meet & Greet: 10:00 am
Program Begins at 10:30 am


   One of the most difficult problems for family historians is locating an ancestral village in the Old World. Knowing when and where an ancestor arrived in what became the United States can help solve that problem. Covering timeframes from the Colonial period to the present, this pre-recorded program will help identify the types of records containing ancestor arrival information in America. It will also explore the contents and location of those records.

   Lucky for us, accessing digital images is easier today than ever before!
