2021 Annual Genealogy Lecture Series

Saturday, March 27 at 9:00am to 3:30pm CST

Join us for the Maryland State Library Resource Center’s 20th Annual Genealogy Lecture Series, featuring nationally known lecturer, genealogist, and immigration research expert, Rich Venezia.  Mr. Venezia will present the following lectures:

  • Discovering Your Immigrant’s Origins
  • Ship Manifests: An In-Depth Look
  • Alien Registrations in America
  • Naturalization Know-How: The Laws and Records of U. S. Citizenship

Venezia is a veteran of both Genealogy Roadshow’s research team and TEDx Pittsburgh, as well as the founder of Rich Roots Genealogy.  He is an expert in the research of 20th-century immigrant ancestors, especially underutilized record sources and federal records. He also specializes in Italian and Irish research, and he assists clients with dual citizenship applications for both.

For more information about Rich Venezia, watch his TEDxPittsburgh lecture about “How to Grow Empathy From Uncovering Your Roots” on YouTube.  Or, read some of his articles, check out testimonials about him, and more at Rich Roots Genealogy.
