General Meeting

Sunday, September 10, 2017

Immigration and Naturalization

Barbara Ellman will present "They Came and Wanted to Belong: Immigration & Naturalization" at the September meeting of the Monmouth County Genealogy Society.

"Where Did I Come From?" is a question probably every human being asks at some time, whether asking literally, about the birds and bees, or on a more sophisticated level as genealogists, it is the basic question that drives our desire to find out as much as possible about our ancestors. Once we establish who our ancestors were, their names and vital statistics, the next question is where, geographically, did they come from. Frequently the answer is elusive.

Ms. Ellman will discuss locating immigration and naturalization records as the primary sources for this information. She is a professional genealogist with more than 15 years of experience locating family on four continents and has traced her own family back to 1760 in Eastern Europe. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and is a Vice President of the Genealogical Society of Bergen County.

Specializing in Jewish and New York research she is currently the JewishGen KehilaLinks Technical Coordinator assisting site managers in creating websites memorializing the communities where their ancestors lived. KehilaLinks provides the opportunity for anyone with an interest in a location with a Jewish population to create web pages about that community.
