About this webinar

We’re all descended from migrants – it’s a fact of history. But who left Europe when? Where did our earliest known ancestors come from? How can we use what we know about family to understand where to look for records? What if we have almost nothing at all? Join MyHeritage’s Director of Content in Europe, Myko Clelland, as we delve into centuries of travel from the old world to the new, getting to grips with the historical rules and patterns that give us the context to better tell our ancestors stories and lead us to new discoveries.

    Great presentation Myko providing plenty of food for thought – whilst not rocket science it is still easy to forget some of the simple rules of migration. Good case studies that demonstrate how to apply these rules. My ancestors were mostly affected by the rural to urban migration activity so much of this rang a bell.

    This was an amazing presentation and supported my own theory of family migrations even within the United States alone!
