WMGS Monthly Meeting: Using Emigrant Guides for Genealogical Research
Wednesday, December 2 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Emigrant guides provided essential information and practical advice to our ancestors about travel routes, weather, opportunities, and much more. Learn how to use emigrant guides for insight into the how’s and why’s of an ancestor’s preparation and journey across an ocean or the country.
If you have ever wondered how your ancestors managed to venture across our country, perhaps in a covered wagon, or wondered how they were able to navigate from tiny villages in distant countries to come to the United States, you’ll want to attend this presentation.
