JPHS: Immigration & Naturalization – Online Webinar
November 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This is a Jamaica Plain Historical Society event
For many family historians, a time comes when they need to research their ancestor’s country of origin. Knowing what resources exist and how to find them can be particularly challenging when first beginning this search. Naturalization records are important resources for these family historians. Often these records provide the immigrant’s origins, age or birth date, and approximate arrival to the U.S. In this lecture, Rhonda R. McClure, Senior Genealogist at American Ancestors and the New England Historical and Genealogical Society, will go over what records exist, how to search them, and where to locate essential resources when researching your immigrant ancestor.
Rhonda R. McClure, Senior Genealogist, is a nationally recognized professional genealogist and lecturer. Rhonda is the compiler of more than 120 celebrity family trees; has been a contributing editor for Heritage Quest Magazine, Biography magazine and was a contributor to The History Channel Magazine and American History Magazine.
This will be an online presentation. While this event is free and open to the public, space is limited. Please register and the link to the event will be sent for the webinar. Register at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/immigration-naturalization-tickets-122879137809
