RT1431 - My ancestors are from Britain - What do I do next?

Session Description

An estimated over 72 million Americans have British roots, but we're much more than a Royal Family! Discover the many different kinds of records of the British Isles available to a genealogical researcher, how they differ from records found in the United States whilst learning what to be aware of when studying them. From the moment your ancestors arrived in the United States back to the medieval era, explore local traditions, historic events & the records you can use to connect the pieces that reveal your British heritage - even if you only know their name and national origin. Examples will be given of passenger lists, wills, court records, censuses and substitutes, church records, government registers, local historic newspapers, occupational rolls, institutional and military records throughout that show not only how to use and understand these documents but the historical context behind their existence & how to use them when uncovering the stories that reveal our ancestors' lives.
