Out of the Whirlwind: Finding Your Family Lost in the Holocaust
Nov 7 1:00 PM-3:00 PM
Speaker: Debbie Long Professional educator, speaker and author
There are numerous resources available to trace the Holocaust history of our families. Knowledge of these resources can provide important information in your search, determining the fate of those who remained and building out a family tree that ties to those who survived. This session will focus on the many resources that can assist you in your search.
Mining the Manifest
Dec 12 1:00 PM -3:00 PM Annual Meeting
Speaker: Susan Weinberg, President MNJGS, author, genealogy consultant, speaker
After 1906, immigration manifests offer a wealth of information, but what do you do if your family came over prior to that time? And how did they get from New York to Minnesota? We will take a look at derivative naturalization documents, trace contacts they were going to through the NY vital records and follow immigrants who found their route through Canada. Once in New York, we will explore how you can follow their journey to Minnesota.
