[CA--SCGS] Lunch and Learn, Saturday, September 9, 2018


Adoption Research , 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

Adoption Research can be a very emotional undertaking whether you are the adoptee or the parent. If you are working an ancestral adoption (someone long ago was adopted) records can be scarce. Come and find out tips for Researching through Adoption Records.  

Introduction to Tax, Land and Military Records    2:10 to 3:10 p.m.

This class will introduce you to the vast array of Tax, Military and Land records which could just help you break through those brick walls. Come take your research to the next level.

Ports of Entry  3:20 to 4:20 p.m.

All ships and ports kept records and many of our ancestors did not come through Ellis Island. Come learn about the other ports and how to find their records Some discussion of Ellis Island and Castle Garden will be included.
