Upcoming 2020 Webinars
19 Nov 2020 – Patricia Walls Stamm, CG, CGL
Traveling the US Marine Highway
- Webinar Abstract: All states have navigable waterways. These include rivers like the Mississippi, bays like Chesapeake, canals like the Miami, or lakes that link an area to other states or even the ocean. Across the United States, there are 250,000 rivers and canals that create the inland waterway system. For our ancestors, marine travel was an integral part of their lives. While many researchers have river ancestors, they have no idea where to start to look for records. Discover the various avenue of research for our ancestors who lived by or used the waterways for their livelihood and transportation.
