Webinar — Researching your East European ancestors

The Uxbridge Genealogy Group and Durham Region Branch of Ontario Ancestors will host a special joint meeting on Thursday, April 15, at 7 p.m. Eastern time that includes the lecture, Introduction to Researching Your East European Ancestors, delivered by Eva Kujawa.

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.

There are only 100 seats for this meeting and lecture, so click on the Zoom link that can be found on the Durham Region Branch home page a good 10 to 15 minutes before it starts. Links to three handouts for the lecture are also on the home page. There is no registration.
