About the Presentation

Immigration Ports of Entry

Exploring how to locate when and where your ancestor immigrated to the United States. We’ll look at all ports of entry such as New Orleans, Providence or Boston (not just Ellis Island). Plus cover other tools available such as the Census, Voter lists, and Homestead records to help research your ancestor’s immigration history.

About Christine Johns Cohen

I am a long-time member of the Whittier Area Genealogical Society (WAGS), and have served in many capacities, including President. In addition to WAGS, I’m also a member of the El Redondo Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Society of Daughters of Holland Dames and the Association of Professional Genealogists.

My interest in genealogy began in 1977 with the airing of the TV mini-series “Roots” and was piqued when I found a typed pedigree chart of my Dutch heritage from the New Netherlands in the 1660’s. I’m a native Californian, a graduate of UCLA in Political Science and have worked for Vitol Aviation Company since 1993.
