In conjunction with the opening of the exhibit "New Spaces - New Stories", the Center presented talks by two experienced genealogical researchers.
Michael Buryk is no stranger to the Center, having given a well-attended talk last spring. He returned to share his expertise based on extensive personal experience doing genealogical research in Polish and Ukrainian archives. Michelle Tucker Chubenko has been a professional genealogical researcher since 2001, doing research from Oklahoma to Poland. She completed research for and appeared in the Brooke Sheilds' episode of NBC's show "Who Do You Think You Are?". She presented talks on how to make use of a variety of US and Canadian sources (including immigration, census, and military service records, as well as newspapers and city directories) to finding family history information.
