Immigrant Ancestors Talk at SBCGS

Immigrant Ancestors Talk at SBCGS (Santa Barbara County Genealogy Society) tomorrow!

This is one of my favorite presentations – “Coming to America: Castle Garden, Ellis Island & Immigrant Ancestors” – and it begins at 10:30 a.m. at the First Presbyterian Church at Constance and State in Santa Barbara, California. Don’t forget the Special Interest Groups starting at 9:30 a.m.

This talk is based on my new e-book, Discovering Immigrant Ancestors, a 77-page PDF with 25 pages of active links to immigration and naturalization resources and an overview of immigration from Europe to America in the 19th and twentieth centuries. Fifteen percent of e-book sales will be donated to the Sahyun Library.

There are five parts to my talk, as this is a hybrid of two presentations. In the first part, we’ll follow in the footsteps of European immigrant ancestors who approached America’s “front doors to freedom” through the Customs House, Castle Garden, or Ellis Island in the 19th and 20th centuries.
