Researching Colonial War Ancestors In New England
In the 17th and 18th centuries, conflicts between European superpowers often played out in their fledgling North American colonies. The seizure of land from and hostilities with Indigenous Peoples often turned violent. Many of our colonist ancestors in New England participated in these bloody wars. This three-part online course will provide you with the historical context of these conflicts, point you to essential published resources and original documents, and demonstrate strategies for proving your descent from a colonial war veteran.
This course includes three 90-minute classes; exclusive access to handouts and recordings of each presentation; and in-depth Q&A sessions with the instructors.
