Italian Genealogy Roundtable

Saturday, Apr 29th


Vermont Genealogy Library
377 Hegeman Ave. (Across from State Police)
Fort Ethan Allen
Colchester, Vermont

Long before the first marble and granite quarries opened in Vermont Italian immigrants had been arriving here. But with the wave of artisans, businessmen and expert stone carvers who began arriving in the last half of the 19th Century, Italian-Americans became a major ethnic population in the Green Mountain State. Their genealogical records are hidden in the town halls of Barre, Montpelier, Rutland and other towns.

Join us for a discussion by our members and other attendees of the most successful strategies for following the family histories of Vermont`s Italian settlers and pursuing those lines back to Italy. We`ll discuss useful websites and issues with language, record-keeping and naming conventions. Bring along your stories and the challenges you`ve faced as we collectively take a look at what works and where to search.

This talk is free and open to the public.






Genealogy Research in New York State

May 6th


Vermont Genealogy Library
377 Hegeman Ave. (Across from State Police)
Fort Ethan Allen
Colchester, Vermont

Vital records and other sources can be difficult to locate in New York State due to the lengthy period of settlement and the lack of a consistent and centralized system of recording genealogical events. That does not mean that NY State lacks records - merely that they are scattered and harder to locate. And a great collection of state census records can often compensate for other lapses. Join Dr. Anastasia Pratt, Clinton-County Historian, for a valuable look the Empire State's records.
