Most of us trace our origins in this country to people coming to America – some earlier and some later. But how did our ancestors get here, and from where? And what challenges await us when we continue tracing our line in another country? In “Origins: Immigration and International Research,” hosted by the McPherson Public Library from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 14 Steve Read will tell you what you need to know before leaving the U.S. and going global.
“We are a nation of immigrants; one of the common threads which many families share is that story of their ancestors coming to America,” Read said. “And continuing your research in another country can be both fascinating and highly rewarding.”
Read has updated the content from last year’s class and also added some new material. Some of the topics include:
- A nation of immigrants
- To the transporter, Mr. Spock!
- A brief guide to the rest of the world
- There’s a map for that
- Welcome to Club Gen
- With a little help from my genes
Registration is required for this class. Call the library at 620-245-2570 to register or go to macpl.org/trace.
