2017 ISGS Free Webinars
Ten Years is a Long Time: Census Substitutes for the In-between Years
Presenter: Amy Johnson Crow, CG
Date: August 8, 2017, 8:00 pm Central
Description: The federal census gives us wonderful clues for our research, but the ten years between each census is a long time. This presentation will discuss records that can be used to fill in the gap and add more points to your ancestor's timeline.
Luxembourgers on the Prairie: Researching your Luxembourg Ancestors
Presenter: Lisa Oberg
Date: September 12, 2017, 8:00 pm Central
Description: There are more people of Luxembourg-descent living in the Midwest than currently living in Luxembourg today, yet this immigrant group is often invisible as they frequently became absorbed in German-speaking communities following their arrival. Chicago has several historically Luxembourg neighborhoods and Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa, among other states, all have unique distinctly Luxembourg settlements. This webinar will explore resources for locating your Luxembourg ancestor in the U.S., identifying their ancestral village and tips for researching Luxembourg's multilingual records.
