Saturday, February 11, 2023: “British Empire: Using FindMyPast,” with Christine Cohen

February 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Saturday, February 11, 2023: Christine Cohen presents “British Empire: Using FindMyPast.”
Note: Cohen is in California and will be presenting via Zoom. Attendees may watch from home via Zoom, or may join us in person at SSGHS as we gather to watch her via Zoom.

The website www.FindMyPast.com has an extensive collection of resources specific to the United Kingdom. We will explore unique resources like British and Irish Newspapers, Electoral Rolls, Workhouse and Poor Law records, and Trade Directories to aid in researching your British Empire ancestors.

Cohen is a long time member of the Whittier Area Genealogical Society (WAGS), and has served in many capacities, including President. In addition to WAGS, she is also a member of the El Redondo Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Society of Daughters of Holland Dames and the Association of Professional Genealogists.

Her interest in genealogy began in 1977 with the airing of the TV mini-series “Roots” and was piqued when she found a typed pedigree chart of her Dutch heritage from the New Netherlands in the 1660’s. She is a native Californian, a graduate of UCLA in Political Science and has worked for Vitol Aviation Company since 1993.
