Colorado: Following the paper trail, Nov. 21

Follow your family's paper trail  at a special computer lab session for beginners at the University of Denver Computer Lab, on Sunday, November 21. 

"Becoming an American: Following Your Ancestor's Paper Trail" is a beginner-level program on using internet resources  that will run from 10am-noon.  It is part of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado's Family Tree Initiative Workshop and Mentoring Series.  
Learn which documents immigrants completed as they entered America and became citizens, where those materials can be found, and what information they contain about changed names, relatives, origins and more. Follow a paper trail including passenger ship manifests, census, naturalizations, vital records, military service, land ownership, and probate – all starting from the computer!
Take a field trip to the computer lab at the University of Denver where every participant will be connected to a computer. No prior knowledge of genealogy or computers is necessary. There is a one-time $30 fee that covers all sessions, a book, materials, and one year of membership in the Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado.  Participants can attend one or all seven lectures of the Jewish Family Tree Initiative.
Reserve in advance to save your seat for this program.
