Imagine leaving everything you and your family has known for generations for an unexplored, unfamiliar, possibly hostile "New World." Who were these people of unbounded courage, faith, and resiliency who ultimately laid the foundation for the America as we know it? What stories they must tell! What do the records reveal of their immigration, voyage and settlements in America? We'll look at what history has left us in passenger records and alternative sources & both primary and secondary & to peel back this riveting portion of our personal and national history.
Beth Foulk has turned a lifetime genealogy passion into an opportunity to share what she’s learned with genealogists across the country.
She has documented her Civil War, War of 1812, and Revolutionary War ancestors. She has mapped the migration of her Kansas and Missouri pioneers. And researched the arrival of her many Massachusetts Colonial settlers. Each ancestor and each story quickly become a “teaching moment” for her classes.
“The only thing more fun than a genealogy find, is sharing what I’ve learned to help other genealogists.”
Foulk has been “spreading the genealogy gospel” since 2008 when she first taught as a volunteer at the Midwest Genealogy Center in Independence, Missouri.
