Register for Webinar Wednesday - Angel Island's Immigrants from 80 Countries: Stories from the West Coast Counterpart to Ellis Island by Grant Din

Register

While people who have heard about Angel Island might know about the Chinese poetry carved on its walls, what is less known is that over half a million immigrants from eighty countries were processed by officials on the island, and genealogical resources are still available to researchers. There were generally more barriers to Angel Island immigrants than on Ellis Island, and case files document these challenges faced by immigrants. Learn from examples of Chinese, Japanese, Jewish, Korean, Russian, and South Asian immigrants, as well as the island's use to house "enemy aliens" from Hawaii and the West Coast during World War II, and find out about the National Archives and other resources that might be available for your own research.

Identifying Children Represented by Tick Marks in Pre-1850 Censuses - free webinar by Denise E. Cross, MSLIS, CG now online for limited time

 

Identifying Children Represented by Tick Marks in Pre-1850 Censuses - free webinar by Denise E. Cross, MSLIS, CG now online for limited time

The recording of today's webinar by The Board for Certification of Genealogists and Denise E. Cross, MSLIS, CG, "They Had Names: Identifying Children Represented by Tick Marks in Pre-1850 Censuses" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/BCG for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

Early nineteenth century censuses represented children in a household with nameless tick marks in gender and age categories. Their identities can be discovered despite the absence of birth records by using the tick marks to determine an approximate birth year then build an exhaustively researched FAN for the head of household. Correlation tools, geographic proximity in land records and later censuses, and ruling out same named individuals, all provide the indirect evidence to give names to the tick marks.

Samoan Genealogy (Gafa) Retold - free webinar by Andrew Reuben Peteru, now online for limited time

 

Samoan Genealogy (Gafa) Retold - free webinar by Andrew Reuben Peteru, now online for limited time

The recording of today's webinar by Andrew Reuben Peteru, "Samoan Genealogy (Gafa) Retold" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

For small communities like Samoa, a tiny group of islands in Polynesia, genealogy is preserved and fiercely protected through oral tradition as they are intrinsically linked to land and chiefly titles. The validity of these genealogical narratives have not been immune to at least two waves of mass population loss that coincided with the arrival of Europeans, coupled with political interference towards colonisation. With today's advancement of technology, family historians can now access and salvage never seen before documents and photos, and decipher DNA tests and some of the findings are not supporting versions of traditional genealogy. How should Family Historians approach this sensitive subject?
