Shifting Boundaries in Europe

Join us in January for Paul Hadzima’s presentation, “Central and Eastern Europe – How Shifting Boundaries Have Affected the Search for Your Ancestors.”  Central/Eastern Europe has seen an ever-changing set of borders, with countries growing larger and smaller, disappearing, and then reappearing – often with a change in names.  It is important to know the situation in your ancestor’s homeland at the time they left for America.  Some of the information you discover might seem counter-intuitive.  Knowing the history of border changes might clarify your search!  
Mr. Hadzima is a graduate of Wesleyan University and a retired history teacher.  He has spent the past 25 years researching his family – especially in Eastern Europe, where he has visited more than a dozen times.  He is a member of the Connecticut Society of Genealogists, the Genealogical Society of New Jersey, and the Czechoslovak Genealogical Society International.
There is no charge for the meeting.  Members will receive email invitations to the Zoom meeting.  Non-members can request an invitation by emailing their full name, address, telephone number, and email address to no later than January 7.  Space is limited.
