Once you’ve discovered your immigrant ancestor’s home country, how will you go about finding documents generated while s/he was still there, and how will you research his/her parents?  We’ll discuss available resources for beginning your research in foreign countries, including how to locate foreign language genealogy terms and online maps providing contextual information on shifting country borders.

During the fall of 2021, the Dexter District Library will require registration for all indoor, in-person programs.  Registrants will need to register all members of their party.  During this time, only pre-registered attendees will be seated.  To provide for adequate social distancing, the Library will need to limit the number of in-person attendees at each program.  Past attendance patterns for in-person events would frequently exceed current COVID-19 capacity limits.  Walk-ins cannot be accommodated.  The Library will continue to monitor COVID-19 conditions and the Library Board will review these requirements on a monthly basis.
