Crossing the Ocean: Finding Your Family
Most of us know our grandparents’ names and perhaps a bit beyond that, but the idea of crossing the ocean to find your ancestral history may seem daunting. With many records now available online, you can often trace your family from the comfort of your home.
Susan Weinberg will show how to work from US records back to records overseas, unlocking the many resources that will assist you in that journey. Using examples from Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus she invites you to join her as she connects immigrants to the US back to their family in Eastern and Central Europe, identifying ancestral towns and the community of relationships that they left behind. Sourcing both US records and records from Europe, she will weave them together to learn the story that connects them.
