This amazing new course will explore the immigration saga, which Dr. Colletta describes as one that "tends to be the most dramatic and momentous chapter of American family history." The course will explore sources and methods for reconstructing the lives of ancestors who came from foreign lands, from the 1590s through the twentieth centuries.
More importantly, the course will weave together a picture of the immigrant experience – leaving home, crossing the ocean, finding a place to settle and put down roots. Students will learn how to locate the biographical details that personalize their ancestor's immigrant experience as well as how to prepare to trace family lines in the Old Country.
Coordinated by John Philip Colletta, PhD, FUGA; D. Joshua Taylor, MA, MLS also instructing; joined by Deborah S. Gurtler, AG.
