About this webinar

While church registers are the most popular and useful sources for tracing most Eastern European ancestors, and civil registration of births, marriages, and deaths provide even more details, there are other record groups to be searched that may prove useful, especially in the absence of church and vital records for your locality. This webinar will discuss available, census, tax lists, land,  military, and other records and how to access them.

    Great topic. Great presentation. Time well spent.

    Great webinar by Lisa!

    Great webinar! So much information that will be so helpful in research of my lines and my husband’s. Thanks 🙂

    great webinar!!

    Have heard Lisa in person at gen. conferences. She is always very informative and well-organized. Thank you for this opportunity.

    I have not yet found my ancestors from this area but know that there are many and wanted to be somewhat prepared. I’m excited with my searches even though I am just beginning to conquer my heritage but am thankful for the opportunity to get a head start with all this awesome information. Thank you!

    I learned alot about eastern European records and found it very helpful. Will definitely watch it again

    I look forward to catching the rest of the presentation at a later time.

    I received lots of useful and new information! Thanks a lot!!!

    I’m glad there is a syllabus and that I can listen to this again. Lots of information!

    It was presention was very good. I learned a lot about Europe places on where to start

    Joined late and don’t have Eastern European research to do, but found the searching hints Lisa gave to be very valuable for my research, too.

    Just the right pace- loaded with helpful, informative, and useful information!

    Legacy Family Tree Webinars top them all! Another home run!

    Lisa had a fabulous presentation, and the webinar was crystal clear.

    Lisa is a favorite of Webinar Presenters! She speaks very clearly and concisely. Her Webinars and especially today cover so much information that we might overlook or places just plain don’t think to look. I know of no Eastern European ancestors but thought information she presented would help me with other European research and am sure it will. Her Syllabus is fantastic with its detailed information, links and items not covered in the Webinar. Thanks so much, Lisa, Geoff and All!

    Lisa is always excellent and I really enjoyed this webinar since I’m trying to find out where my in-laws came from in Poland, Austria, Russia. I’ll be watching this one again and again. Thanks
