February 2021 Webinar

NUCMC And Its Cousins: Keys to Lost Ancestral Records
  • Presenter: Paula Stuart-WarrenPaula Stuart-Warren
  • Date: Tuesday, February 16, 2021
  • Time: 7:00 PM Central
  • Webinar Description: Where might Great Aunt Sadie’s diary be today? What ethnic or religious organization records have survived for our immigrants? What repository houses the business records of an ancestor? Where might you find the files of a relative who was working on a lineage society application? As our families migrated westward, whether by foot, wagon, or train, the records associated with them may have been left in several places. Many genealogists think that there may be no records for part of the family. However, there may be substantial information buried away in a manuscript collection. There are many FREE finding aids online and off that lead to these nuggets that represent hundreds of years of material. The Minnesota and Wisconsin historical societies are home to thousands of manuscript collections.
