You will learn when and why people emigrated from these countries. This class will also cover how to start and focus your research, explore the records available, and which U.S. websites may be helpful in your quest. We will also learn how to overcome a language barrier and learn which MGC books and periodicals are helpful for this research. Registration will close at 12:00 pm the day before the scheduled program. Participants will be emailed a Zoom access code the day of the program. Please include your email in the registration.
