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.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • How social history and migration patterns can help you track your ancestor
  • WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE

  • People who wish to learn where their family came from outside the United States
  • Descendants of fairly recent immigrants—e.g., late 19th- and early 20th-century arrivals—who have just a few generations to trace in US sources
  • Researchers who have traced a family line as far back in America as they can, and want to take their research to the next level
  • WHAT YOU'LL NEED: REQUIREMENTS & SUPPLIES
