Introduction to Researching Your East European Ancestors

This lecture is for beginners or people who have a brick wall in this area. In her presentation, Eva 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. She covers the majority of countries and will share the impacts of the various cultures that share the borders of this magnificent area. Eva will guide people through various research resources, how to plan research and address potential challenges and solutions for this type of genealogical research. She 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 that can be located. A list of websites and databases that hold a huge amount of information for this region will be included in the handout.
