ABOUT THE PRESENTATION

Documenting the migration paths of my grandfather and his 3 siblings (1904 - 1911) involved home sources, oral history interviews, passenger lists, naturalization documents, Russian-language directories, microfilm and other sources. You will learn how you can apply this process to identify your ancestor’s town of origin and the likely route between it and the departure port and more.
