Genealogy research highlights the mid-November schedule at the L. E. Phillips Memorial Public Library in Eau Claire.
“Find Your Roots in Naturalization Records,” a program designed for people interested in researching the beginning of their family roots in America, is scheduled for 6 p.m. next Tuesday (Nov. 14). The hour-long program will take place in the Eau Claire Room on the library’s lower level.
No registration is required for this free event. Refreshments will be served.
Steve Szabados, a lecturer and author of nine genealogy books, will be the speaker. He will discuss the history of the naturalization process, including requirements for naturalization.
He will also examine how to find where ancestors were naturalized, using traditional and online sources. Where people were naturalized is the key to finding their immigration documents.
Szabados is a contributing editor for the Polish American Journal and a member of the Polish Genealogical Society of America, the Illinois Genealogy Society and the Northwest Suburban Genealogy Society. He is a genealogy volunteer at his local library in Arlington Heights, IL.
