Since COVID-19 We have transitioned to both in=person and Zoom for our meetngs which are held on the last Wednesday of the month at 9:30. In addition we have a mid-month meeting via Zoom only. . Some may not care for Zoom, however, this has enabled us to have speakers from all over the state and even from England at a much better rate than having to pay for travel expenses, so there are advantages. Below are some of our upcoming meetings and events:
Between 1500 and 1914 approximately 20 million people crossed the Atlantic and settled in the US and another 5 million settled initially in Canada. Finding records for these emigrants can be challenging and frustrating. We'll get an understanding of how emigrants traveled to North America during this timeframe, an overview of the records that documented their journeys and a strategy for locating available records.
