This course will be of interest to those researching ancestry of families thought to have Polish, Hungarian, Slovak, Baltic States, Czech or Ruthenian/Ukrainian ethnicity. The focus will be on how research in Eastern Europe differs from family history in the UK, remote access to secular and religious sources and databases, practical advice and experience of visiting and searching in local archives (including Vienna) and migration (by choice and obligatory). There will be emphasis throughout on the importance of addressing these topics in their local historical context (please note the course content will not specifically cover research into tracing victims and survivors of the WWII holocaust). Bring along your own specific family history research queries for discussion.
