Bryan Mulcahy: Immigration/Naturalization & Ships Passenger Lists  (General Meeting)
10:30 am to 12:00 pm
Selby Public Library, 1331 First Street, Geldbart Auditorium, Main Floor, Sarasota, 34236
Immigration records fall into a number of categories.  The most popular involve Ship Passenger Arrival Records.  Both categories often provide important genealogical information for tracing our immigrant ancestors.  The amount of information varies by time period.  These records can help us identify critical personal pieces of information that will be necessary to trace them upon entry into the United States or Canada.  This type of information will play an important role as the immigrant begins the process of gaining citizenship.  Naturalization records in the United States were formally established in 1790.  The law gave authority to common law courts of record in any state to confer citizenship to aliens.  Over time this law has been amended to set up more specific procedures. Our seminar will touch on the importance of these records and their relationship to the three steps in the Naturalization process.
 
Bryan is the Adult Reference, Genealogy, and Literacy Librarian for Lee County Library System since 1990.  He was the Adult Reference, Genealogy, and Circulation Librarian for SW Georgia Regional Library (Bainbridge) and Moultrie-Colquitt County Library, Georgia 1984-1990.  Bryan was associated with The Ellen Payne Odom Genealogy Library from September 1988-March 1990. He was also the Reference, Circulation Assistant, FSU Law Library – Tallahassee, FL  1982-1984. He obtained his B.A. and MLS from Florida State University in 1977-1978, 1982-1984, respectively, and his A.A. from Miami Dade Community College in 1975-1976.
