This comes from the Suncoast Genealogy Society:
The Suncoast Genealogy Society will have a guest speaker at the Sept 27, 2014 meeting. Deanna J Bennett, author of Anna: Going to America and Anna: the American Journey, will speak on European Immigration 1860 - 1930.
Learn what it was like for families leaving their home and country for America. How did they get to the port? Where did they stay on the way? What was life like on the ship? How did they amuse themselves? These issues are all discussed in the book Anna: Going to America. This is the story of the author's grandmother, who at age 15, left her home in Lithuania with her mother, to join her brothers in America.
The meeting is 2 pm - 3:30 pm. It will be preceded by the Root's Magic user group at 1 pm.
Deanna' s books will be available for purchase. The first book is $20. The second is $16 or both for $35. The third in the trilogy will be available in 2015.
Guests are welcome. The program is free. The meeting is held in the Palm Harbor Library.
