“Getting Ready to Cross the Pond”
Presented by: Diane Barbour PLCGS
For April, our own Diane Barbour will be presenting. Her topic will be “Getting Ready to Cross the Pond.”
“Start with what you know and work back”. Often it is necessary to know what town, city, county or village your ancestors are from. We will discuss the many records on this side of the puddle that may reveal that information and where to find them. Then we will discuss where to find information about your overseas destination and what you should know before you travel.

“It’s not online, the other 90% of records.”
Presented by: Suz Bates, Genealogist
