For more information please contact [masked]
The purpose of the EE- SIG is to help each other with our Eastern European genealogy. At our meetings we are among others who may have some guidance, similar experiences, and suggestions to help with our research. This can be in the form of identifying useful methodologies, websites, resources, etc. as well as trying to help break down some of our brick walls.The group agreed that an educational element may be interesting to do each meeting. For example, someone might pick a topic and present a short (no more than 15 minute) summary. Topics may include: Records that may hold clues to locating your ancestral village? What does the Naturalization Process consist of? What information can you glean from the US Census Records? We would like to rotate to those willing to present.A running list of useful websites / sources will be kept.Jen L provided a copy of useful Polish websites (see attached)Action: Karen will provide copies of “Tracing Your Eastern European Ancestors” from Family Chronicle
