The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay will present the part two
conclusion of a two-part seminar on Naturalization Research. Emphasis is
given to research resources on the Internet and in library materials in the
JGSTB library. If you missed Part one of this seminar, the seminar booklet
thoroughly covers both parts, and part two is not dependent upon part one.
This will still be a good learning experience.
This seminar is targeted for an intermediate level, but beginners are
welcome and will benefit >from the information presented. An extensive Q & A
is planned. The presentation will be illustrated by approximately 200 slides
(included in the course booklet).
The naturalization records of your ancestors can help to establish their
roots in the old country. Unfortunately the tangled web of naturalization
laws, the multitude of judicial jurisdictions, and the scattered location of
germane records make the search for these documents difficult and
frustrating. This course is designed to reduce the mystery and confusion and
to improve the chances of a successful search. A brief history of the laws
and of governmental entities involved in naturalization processes will be
presented, and a logical progression for finding actual records of interest
will be demonstrated; Special emphasis will be given to the use of Internet
Emil H Isaacson will lead the course. Dr. Isaacson has over 22 years of
experience in genealogy and has researched his ancestral roots back seven
generations to the late 1700's in Europe. He will share his successful and
sometimes unsuccessful techniques that allowed him to connect with his
ancestors in the old country.
