Webinar to discuss immigrant travel to the U.S.

The Florida State Genealogical Society will present a free webinar on Thursday, Feb. 19, at 8 p.m. entitled “A Guide to Overseas Genealogy.”

Crossing the pond is easier than you think. This webinar will cover the history of immigrant travel into the US and how to find genealogical records in most European countries. A list of books and over 70 American and European websites for genealogical research and a guide for translating records will be provided.

During the first part of the presentation, tips will be offered on how to find the town your ancestor came from. In the second part of the presentation, you will learn where to find ship records and how to analyze passenger lists to learn more about your ancestors. There will be a discussion about various websites, both American and European, where a researcher may find records of their family, including church, civil, archive, census, and cemetery records.
