Land Records to the Rescue! Presented by Alice Hoyt Veen

Learn techniques for getting the most from land records and see how they contribute to the breakthrough of a typical genealogical ‘brick wall’. Native Iowan Alice Hoyt Veen is a Board-certified genealogist, professional researcher, and genealogical educator. She believes family history success lies in truly understanding the records our ancestors created. Her presentations reflect this philosophy through real case-study examples and hands-on
practice. Go to Member Login then Class Registration

Learn about your immigrant ancestors’ voyage from Europe to the United States,
and how those journeys changed from the 18th century through the 20th century.
How did our ancestors prepare for the journey? What immigration restrictions &
quota laws did they face? How were ports of departure and arrival chosen? What
was the ticket cost? How long would the journey take, and what were the
expected ship accommodations? Katherine R. Willson of Michigan is an
engaging & dynamic genealogical educator at local, regional, and national
events; the original cataloger of the "Genealogy on Facebook," "Genealogy on
YouTube," and "Genealogy Podcasts" lists; and a professional researcher who specializes in the use of
