Researching Eastern European Archives from Your Easy Chair
For decades accessing information about Polish, Czech, Slovak, Russian, Ukrainian or other Eastern European ethnic groups was often difficult and expensive, but digitizing efforts have changed the research landscape. Learn which Eastern European archives and other organizations have online records and how to access them from the comfort of home.
Where is That? Using Eastern European Atlases, Maps and Gazetteers
If you are tracing your Eastern European ancestors, you know that locating the ancestral town or village can often pose a challenge. In this webinar, you will discover genealogy research methods for finding your ancestor's point of origin. Learn how to use tools such as maps, atlases, and gazetteers to research localities through place name changes and ever-shifting political and geographical boundaries.
Locating and Accessing Eastern European Church Records
Church parish registers are the most popular and useful source for tracing ancestors in Eastern Europe. Often these are the only records in which to find information about our ancestors and their families in the old country. In this webinar, learn where to find parish records (including baptisms, marriages, deaths/burials, confession lists and more), how to access and interpret them, and what rich genealogical clues they contain.
Locating and Accessing Eastern European Civil Records
Civil registration of vital events (births, marriages, deaths) is an important consideration for East European genealogical research. Although civil registration generally began during the 1800s in most areas, the depth of information in these records makes them a valuable source for learning more about people who were registered. In this webinar, learn where to find civil registration records, how to access and interpret them, and what rich genealogical clues they contain.
