At a Glance

Earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and droughts had a significant impact on the lives of our ancestors. Join Ari Wilkins, professional genealogist, to learn about how weather events may have affected your ancestors, causing disease, death, migration, property loss and much more. This genealogical-focused lecture will show how numerous sources such as vital records, newspapers, oral histories and manuscript collections can aid in your ancestral research.
