January 31, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Researching our Eastern European ancestry remains challenging in many countries, where missing records may lead to frustrating “brick walls”. This presentation offers guidance in using the region’s historical events and geography to help fill in gaps and move past brick walls. It shows you ways to identify your ancestors, find the places where they lived, and trace their migrations.
