Family Tree


Topic: Beyond the Passenger List

Passenger lists are more than just a list of names, despite early lists that are barely more than that. Further analysis of a passenger list may give you information on your ancestor. Additional research can lead to information about your ancestor’s experience in port and at sea, as well as their friends and associates. There are many resources to add context to your research.

Speaker: BIFHS–USA president Barbara Randall

After the presentation there will be snacks in the break room and time for research and consulting with your fellow genealogists.
