IMMIGRANT ANCESTORS: They Didn't Just Come in Ships

  FDR once said, “Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionist!” It might have been better if he had told us something that we didn’t already know! It would have been far more helpful if he had told us where we one day might find the records of these newcomers.
In this course, we will discuss what is needed when searching for immigration papers and what to do when you can’t find the documents you are looking for. This course will provide you with information regarding Foreign Ports of Departure, Historical Background, Strategies for researching Immigrants and Their Origins and how to document an Ancestors Immigration.

Homes on the Prarie: The Real Life Saga and Travels of the Ingalls Family

  There are very few people who haven't heard of Laura Ingalls Wilder or Little House on the Prairie! Thanks to her books and the television show that followed, we have been able to get a glimpse into the life of these pioneers. In reality, Laura's story begins long before she was even born. Where did her family come from and what prompted them to move from a little house in the woods of Wisconsin into the uncharted frontier of South Dakota.  Learn the true story of Laura and her family as we compare and contrast the books and television series with what really happened in their lives.   Join me in discovering the ups, downs, triumphs, and tragedies of this beloved family. You can register for this class at: http://www.elpasopubliclibrary.net/calendar.html
