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. This class will be held in person as well as virtually via Zoom simultaneously. Registration is required and closes 1 hour before the start of the program.
