Saturday, March 9th, 2024 - 10:30AM EDT - Live meeting with live presenter.

  • FGS Member and genealogist-consultant Deborah Shaw  : "Finding original names and towns for 19th-20th Century immigrants"
  • Successful genealogy hinges on two essential facts:  what are the original ancestral first/last names for your immigrant ancestor and what is their town.  What if you don’t know one of both of those facts?  Where do you start?  Is it even possible to recapture that crucial information if you know neither?  Using several strategies Ms. Shaw will walk you through each showing examples of how original names and towns can be confirmed many decades after they were forgotten or obscured.
