Announcing our Newest SIG!!
Mid-Atlantic Pre-Civil War
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new Special Interest Group (SIG.) Do you have ancestors who arrived in the US before the Civil War? Did they begin their US experience in the Mid-Atlantic states and then move westward? Then this SIG is for you!
Sometimes the key to finding your ancestor’s home across the ocean is researching the places they lived before they migrated west. This was often in Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, or the surrounding states. This SIG is designed to help people with just that experience.
The focus will be on those who arrived in the US before the Civil War and back to Colonial times. Migration routes, record sources, and more will be discussed.
The SIG will meet on the following dates for 2022:
- September 15
- October 20
- November 10
- December 8
All sessions will begin at 10:00 am EST. Nancy Ryburn will lead the discussion with members sharing research suggestions and support.
In 2023, the SIG will meet at 10:00 am EST on the 4th Thursday of each month.
Join us for our first session on September 15th.
We look forward to you joining us!
