Researching Displaced People
 
Presenter: Julie GoucherJulie Goucher
Date: Tuesday, December 15, 2020
Time: 7:00 PM Central
Webinar Description: In this presentation we focus on the researching those who were displaced, across parts of Europe and elsewhere globally. Why displacement might occur and where, as well as the impact that has on the ability for genealogists to find their forebears. We delve deep in the resources available. We consider occupations, religious influence and surnames and consider the changing of names and the wider concept of individuals starting over. Examples for Wisconsin and Midwest will be included.
