TOPIC: Have you ever wondered about the in's and out's of doing on-site
archival research in Eastern Europe? What is available; whom to
contact; how much and what kind of preparation is needed; handling language
barriers; what sort of results to expect ?? Ambassador Neville Lamdan has had
extensive first hand experience in these situations. All this and more he will
share with us under the rubric of "Research in the National Archives in
Minsk--Be Warned!!"
Although individual Archives, their staffs, services and
methodologies do differ, there are many basics and constants that apply to
all. To illustrate this, following Ambassador Lamdan's presentation, I will
briefly describe my experience at the Latvian Archives in Riga, along with
others who would like to join in with their personal Archival tales.
Archives can offer a treasure trove of invaluable genealogical information,
so please try to join us in learning how to most effectively navigate the hurdles.
