Chain Migration to North America
Saturday, February 18
Chain Migration to North America  (YGS-IGSI webinar)

Our ancestors did not immigrate on a whim. The Irish and others often followed in the footsteps of family members or their neighbors and friends. Learn about the history of chain migration, with examples of well-known routes from specific locations in Ireland to cities and regions in North America. Discover strategies for recognizing and exploring chain migration in your family, no matter their ethnic background.
This virtual program is presented by the Irish Genealogical Society International in partnership with the Yankee Genealogical Society.
You can register for the webinar using this link:
