When did your family’s original immigrant arrive in America? Godfrey Memorial Library Board Chair and Senior Researcher Al Fiacre will present information about finding records of these ancestors coming to different regions of America. The types of sources and where to find them will vary depending upon the time period in which your ancestor initially arrived. One set of records will help place your early colonial ancestors, another for eighteenth and early nineteenth century arrivals, and yet another for later nineteenth and twentieth century immigrants coming for work opportunities, when governmental requirements for record keeping begin to appear.
