Communication challenges arise, both for immigrants and for English-speaking citizens, on the arrival of so many from distant shores. As a nation of immigrants, one stumbling block for American genealogists can be figuring out your ancestor’s name at birth and/or their birthplace. This talk will include determining the correct language of a surname or place name as well as figuring out how to use a variety of translation resources for deciphering documents.
