Tracing Immigrants independent study course
Many people get interested in genealogy because they want to learn more about where their family came from-specifically, to find out which ancestors came over from the "old country" and when. This course will teach you how to identify an immigrant ancestor in your family tree. You'll learn how to pinpoint when and where he or she left, and locate records documenting his or her immigration. Each of the four lessons includes an assignment designed to help you progress in your research of an immigrant ancestor.
They Came in Ships
Chances are excellent that your ancestors came to America from somewhere--England, Spain, Germany, China, Africa. Can you imagine how they felt as they left their homes, what they left behind? Do you want to know? Would you know where to even start looking for the details? Author and genealogist John P. Colletta prepares you to undertake the search. He tells you not only what fundamental facts you need to know about your immigrant ancestor before beginning, but suggests where you may find that information as well.
