Genealogy Series: Researching Your Institutionalized Ancestors

 

Researching institutionalized ancestors can be a real task and can require close research at the local level to unearth clues. Whether your ancestor was at the state hospital, a children’s home, a prison, or another institution, the path you take to research them can be well off the typical databases. What can you expect to find, if anything, and where should you begin to look? Join us for a case study as we track one ancestor from the institution to the archives.

The online accessible collections cover a wide range of genealogical records from the 17th to 21st century and span geographic locations from New England, the rest of the United States, as well as Canada and Europe.

The Life of Gene Siskel

It's a sequel! As a follow-up to last year's program on Roger Ebert, we're looking at Gene Siskel- the other half of Siskel and Ebert. We'll look at his early life, his path to film criticism, and his favorite films.

Oh, and some fun disagreements with Roger.

This program will be presented via Zoom.
