Arlington Heights Memorial Library
*FREE WEBINAR* Successful Strategies for Researching Eastern European Ancestors with Lisa Alzo

6:00 PM Central

A vast number of immigrants came to America from Eastern Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Border changes, language differences, political considerations, and exotic-sounding surnames often complicate the search for Austrian, Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Rusyn, Slovak, Ukrainian, and other Eastern European ancestors. Traditional methods and online resources for tracking ancestors both in the U.S. and the old country will be discussed, as well as techniques for overcoming some of the most common obstacles and problems faced during the research process. Presented by Lisa Alzo.
