Basic Genealogy: Crossing the Pond—Tracing Ancestors in Immigration and Naturalization Records

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Online via Zoom

Join Cape Girardeau Research Center Coordinator Bill Eddleman for the next installment in his genealogy series: “Crossing the Pond: Tracing Ancestors in Immigration and Naturalization Records.” Most family historians in the U. S. have ancestors who migrated from other continents. Depending on the time period of immigration and port of arrival, it can be difficult to find these ancestors and tell their immigration story. This session will summarize surviving immigration records from different time periods and where to find them. It will also include a summary of naturalization records, where to locate them, and information they might contain. Online and free, registration required.
