    Hop In for a Genealogy Road Trip!
    How to plan a genealogical jaunt to see the family sites with Eleanor Brinsko

    It is exciting to find genealogical materials of our ancestors on online databases and in books, but going to the locations where our ancestors lived connects us on a higher level. Cemetery treks can be traditional until the later generations begin to forget the older ancestors, but cemeteries are just one location that mattered in our ancestors’ lives. In this presentation, Eleanor Brinsko, of Carlon Genealogical Services, LLC, will lead a search in looking at our genealogical documentation to bring to life a road trip of a lifetime, making helpful contacts, and some tips on having a successful journey. It’s time to retrace the steps that our ancestors took!

    Eleanor Brinsko (www.carlongenealogy.com) is a professional genealogist who specializes in Scandinavian-American genealogy by looking at genealogical and social trends on both sides of the Atlantic.
