Using Emigrant Guides for Genealogical Research - free BCG webinar by Julie Miller, CG, now online for limited time

Using Emigrant Guides for Genealogical Research- free BCG webinar by Julie Miller, CG, now online for limited time

The recording of Tuesday's BCG webinar, "Using Emigrant Guides for Genealogical Research” by Julie Miller, CG, CGL, FNGS, is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/BCG for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

Have you ever wondered why your ancestor decided to emigrate, how they got there, or how they knew where to go? The answers to these questions could have come from an emigrant guide. Emigrant guides contain instructions and advice for those interested or planning to emigrate. They are useful for gaining insight into the whys and hows of an ancestor's preparation, journey, and settlement in a new land. Whether your ancestor sailed across the ocean or traveled across the country, they had questions about the trip and their future home which an emigrant guide often answered. These guides provided essential information and practical advice about travel, weather, geography, opportunities, and much more. They were aimed at people who were literate and had the means to travel to a new place in order to start a new life. The ideal guide had a table of contents, included maps, was cheap, and was compact for easy carrying. Emigrant guides provide a window into the lives of our ancestors. Learn how to locate the guides and how to use them to understand more about your ancestor's story.

Register for Webinar Wednesday - In Search of My Brother's Mother: An Adoption Story by Beth Foulk

Register

I always knew my brother was adopted. It wasn't a big deal within our little family.. So when our Mother passed, and the adoption files were uncovered after more than 50 years in the back of a closet, I couldn't have imagined the journey we'd embark on. Pull up a chair. I'll tell you the story....genealogy research and all.
