SLIG 2018 Course Highlight: The Third Coast: Research in the Great Lakes Region

Course 2:
 The Third Coast: Research in the Great Lakes Region

Cari A. Taplin, CG and Kathryn Lake Hogan, PLCGS

 This course will take students through genealogical and historical research in the Great Lake region of the United States and Canada. This inland waterway was vital to the westward expansion of both countries, as well as a resource for defense, commerce, shipping, and travel. The fluidity of the boundary between the two nations created a mingling of the people living along the border territories, states, and provinces, and researchers often find their border-dwelling ancestors with ties in the other country. This course will cover the history, geography, methodology and record sets, both American and Canadian, that researchers will need to access when researching ancestors in this region.
