UGA is very excited to invite you to our very first South Davis chapter event--an evening with Leslie Albrecht Huber. Leslie is presenting "The Journey Takers: An Inside Look at the Immigration Experience." Did you ever wonder what it was like for your Western European ancestors to leave their homes behind to start new lives here in Utah? Leslie Albrecht Huber will explore their experiences in her lecture, The Journey Takers: An Inside Look at the Immigration Experience. Come explore these immigrants' stories, the historical context of their lives, and learn some sources and research methods that can help you uncover the stories of your own immigrant ancestors. The lecture is based on Huber's newly released book, The Journey Takers.
Leslie Albrecht Huber is a freelance writer and speaker. Her first book, The Journey Takers, was published in the summer of 2010. Leslie has spoken about her book and about tracing immigrant ancestors on Good Morning America, National Public Radio, and at libraries, museums, and conferences across the country. She has published over 100 articles in a variety of publications including The History Channel Magazine, The Journal of Mormon History, Family Chronicle, History Magazine, Ancestry Magazine, Family Tree Magazine, and others.
