November 2016 Webinar

Passenger List Research:  Castle Garden, Ellis Island and other Ports of Entry
  • Presenter: Bob Heck
  • Date:  Tuesday, November 15, 2016
  • Time: 7:00 PM CST
  • Webinar Description: During this presentation we will learn about the history of passenger lists, where to find them and what information may be available in the records. Using real life examples we will discuss search techniques that can help you find those hidden ancestors. We will also learn about the "To America" series, which can be a great help in finding your immigrant ancestors. We will learn what those cryptic numbers mean on a passenger list and how they can lead you to naturalization documents of your ancestors.
