Researching This Side of the Pond—Part One

The Toronto Ukrainian Genealogy Group(TUGG), will kick off the next series of sessions with “Researching This Side of the Pond—Part One.

There are a growing number of records available in Ukraine and Poland for researching your ancestry. Many of these records are also available “this side of the pond.” While travelling overseas and searching the archives and libraries is preferable, you will still need to know what is available both here and in those archives. You can also conduct a tremendous amount of research without having to travel outside the country.

This session will cover; basic search strategies, obtaining primary and secondary information, where to locate this information from libraries and on the internet, using computer programs, how to open an LDS Account and techniques for effectively searching microfilm records.

When:Tuesday September 10, 2013

Time
: From 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Where: St. Vladimir Institute
