Saturday: Researching Immigrant Ancestors

From the Godfrey Memorial Library.
Godfrey board member Albert Fiacre will guide participants in a search for their homeland, including demonstration of how to locate:
  • ship manifests,
  • naturalization records and
  • vital records in their country of origin
New researchers will learn how to get started, what information is available, how to find it, and how to use it. More seasoned researchers will benefit from tips on search methods and helpful websites and databases. The presentation will include examples for using Family History Centers to find original foreign vital and church records. Participants will have time after the presentation to research at the library. Please bring your laptop.

Presentation is held February 4 at 9:30 a.m. at Godfrey Memorial Library (134 Newfield Street), free to Godfrey Premium Members or $10 a session. No pre-registration necessary.
Call 860-346-4375 for more info.
