Three free webinars available this Wednesday

This Wednesday, May 20, is a great day to expand your genealogy horizons. Three free webinars will take place, one in the afternoon and two in the evening.

Legacy Family Tree Webinars will present “Martha Benshura – Enemy Alien” at 2 p.m. Not all of our ancestors became naturalized citizens. The one who didn’t suddenly became suspect when war divided their native countries from their new homes, creating the kinds of records genealogists love.

The Southern California Genealogical Society will present “The WPA Era: What It Created for Genealogists” at 9 p.m. The 1930s and 1940s government programs put many to work.

This webinar will address how to find some of these records online.
