10:00 AM (Pacific Time)

Register here:


Examining those who lived near your ancestor can provide a clearer context for their life.  You will learn the methodology to examine the usual and unusual source materials that will help you broaden their story.  Whether urban or rural, the neighborhood can provide new insight into why your ancestor chose their location.


Mary K. Risseeuw is a genealogist, historian, writer and lecturer with an emphasis on 19th and 20th Century Dutch emigration and Wisconsin history.  She has been a researcher for over 30 years. She serves on the Board of the Association for the Advancement of Dutch American Studies. She organized the 2008 Dutch in Wisconsin Conference which was the first conference about Dutch immigration to Wisconsin.


A handout will be available shortly before the presentation. A link will be included in a reminder that will be sent the day before the session.
