Beyond Vital Records - Additional Sources to Trace Eastern European Ancestry
Sunday, May 31
Beyond Vital Records - Additional Sources to Trace Eastern European Ancestry  (FxGS Membership Meetings)
1:00 pm
Webinar (ZOOM Meeting)
This session was originally scheduled for May 17, but was rescheduled due to a worldwide outage of the Zoom webinar software.
 
ACCESS: This meeting will occur as a webinar. Members will receive access information in their email.
 
Lecture Description: European borders were fluid, so one family’s records may be in many languages and multiple archives. This talk examines one family that lived in the area spanning the Ukraine/Romanian border but which has been Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Soviet Union, and Ukraine. Multiple record sources were used to reconstruct this family.
 
Presenter: Lara Diamond Lara has been researching her family for over 25 years and has traced all branches of her family multiple generations back in Europe using Russian and Austria-Hungarian Empire records. Most of her research is in modern-day Ukraine, plus some Belarus and Poland. She recently assumed leadership of Jewish Gen’s Subcarpathian SIG and also runs several town-focused projects. She blogs at http://larasgenealogy.blogspot.com.
