Program Description

Event Details

Darien Library and Middlesex Genealogical Society welcome Toni McKeen to discuss ship’s manifests. Toni will take a really close look at ALL the information that these important records can provide.

What you will learn:

  • Find out what information is needed to locate manifests
  • Locate the markings to learn which immigrants were detained and why, who they left behind, the address where they were headed and who they were coming to see

An informal social hour will begin at 1 p.m.
Toni McKeen's lecture will begin at 2 p.m.

About the Presenter

Toni McKeen is on a mission to expose as many people as possible to the fun and importance of tracing their own genealogy. Toni's research on her extensive Italian family, her husband’s Irish family, and son-in-law’s German family spans the last 30+ years. Toni's training from a MS in Biology helped her to establish organized systems and charts for recording family information. She believes documenting your family history is important for yourself and for future generations.

She is a popular lecturer at various genealogy societies in the New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Boston, and Long Island areas and is Chairman of the Genealogy Club of Newtown for the second time.
