June 25 – 3:00 PM – Stream A – Changing Places, Changing Borders: Overcoming geographic challenges in Eastern Europe

Summary 

You will do better research if you can find places, find records, and learn how to interpret and record what you find. 

Outline 

Yes, it has been possible to be born in one country, get married in another, and die in a third — without ever leaving your home village. The boundaries in Eastern Europe have been redrawn many times over the years, presenting challenges for modern-day genealogical researchers. Those redrawn boundaries were not as simple as changing lines on a piece of paper; in many cases they resulted in forced migrations. Also, when jurisdictions have changed, it is especially important to learn how to interpret and record information.
