The Chester County Historical Society and the Chester County Archives have announced that they will host a series of informative genealogical lectures – entitled “Coming to America” – next month.
The series focuses on the record types, research strategies, and historical context of immigration and naturalization, with a special focus on German, Pennsylvania Dutch, and Irish ancestors.
The following lectures will be held at the Historical Society, located at 225 North High Street in West Chester, on Saturdays from 9-11:45 AM:
- May 5: Exploring Naturalization and Immigration Records (presented by Sydney Cruice Dixon)
- May 12: German Immigrants, Pennsylvania Germans, and Their Records (presented by Jim Beidler)
- May 19: Irish Records and Research Strategies (presented by Frank Southcott)
Tickets for each program are $20 for CCHS members, $30 for non-members, and $10 for students with valid student ID. Drinks and light morning fare will be served.
Tickets make an excellent Mother’s or Father’s Day gift for the genealogist in your family. Register by calling 610-692-4800 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
