Colonial Study Group
The Colonial Study Group presently meets online on ZOOM, the second Monday of each month, from 10 am-Noon. Members and visitors are welcome to join this educational group. Contact Karen at email: firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom info.
Our next meeting: February 8th from 10-Noon on Zoom. The Colonial Group will focus on the Youtube video, ‘Colonial Genealogy Records’ by Lisa Louise Cooke, then discuss resources for finding colonial records.
The Colonial Group actively works on genealogical research of the Colonial Period,from early immigration in the 1600’s until our country became the United States of America. We address how to overcome challenges of tracing colonial ancestors,colonial history & social timelines, identifying resources, learning history of the original13 colonies and their towns, look at immigration and migration, and address issues such as: Why our Ancestor and/or their family might have suddenly disappeared? Where and why did they go? How did they get there? And, how do I find people when there are no records? The Colonial Group is educational, helpful and interesting.
