UPCOMING CLASS AT MHS
Intermediate Genealogy Series - May 9
In recognition of the special nature of this weekend, instructor Jay Fonkert has suggested re-naming the classes "Fishing for Ancestors — Especially on Your Mother's Side"! If you're not too busy fishing or planning a special Mother's Day event, join us at MHS for a morning of genealogy. This month's lectures are:
- Immigration and Naturalization
- Migration and Finding European Origins.
"Immigration and Naturalization” will take place from 10:00-11:00 a.m. Passenger arrival records and naturalization records are among the most useful for genealogical research because they provide information about migration, family relationships and foreign origins. This class will teach you how to find records for your ancestors and use them to identify origins and family relationships.br>
After a half-hour break, “Migration and Finding European Origins” will be presented from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. One of the most rewarding parts of family history research is discovering where our ancestors lived and where they came from. This class will provide an overview of major American migration routes and offer tips for tracing ancestors back to Europe.
