Presenter: Eva Kujawa
In my presentation I will cover a historical overview of Eastern Europe, and how it morphed through divisions and border changes, from wars and battles into the countries that we have in today’s world. I cover the majority of countries and will share the impacts of the various cultures that share the borders of this magnificent area. I will guide people through various research resources, how to plan research and address potential challenges and solutions for this type of genealogical research. I will look at topics like, what is in a name, naming traditions, languages, the various handwriting styles as well as the various types of records and that can be located. I will also supply a list of websites and databases that hold a huge amount of information for this region.
