Overlooked Genealogy Resource Alert! 9 Tips to Research at Heritage Museums
Posted by Diane

You’ve searched Ancestry.com and FamilySearch, gone to the library and maybe even taken a DNA test to discover your family's immigrant origins. But for a genealogist, just knowing the country or region is rarely enough.

To find records in your family's homeland, you need their town or village. And you probably want to understand how your ancestors lived, what they did for work, what they wore and ate.

Heritage museums give you a look at that culture’s history and people. Many have research centers (an overlooked genealogy resource!) with records such as foreign-language newspapers, maps, photos, histories and more. Staff often can help with research and translation.

Whether your ancestors hail from Germany, Ireland, Eastern Europe, Japan, Africa, Mexico or elsewhere, there’s probably a museum for that—including Family Tree Magazine's roundup of 11 Must-Visit Heritage Museums.


National Hispanic Cultural Center library, Albuquerque

These tips will help you do your best genealogy research at a heritage museum:
  • Scan the museum website to understand its library holdings and geographic focus. The National Hispanic Cultural Center library in Albuquerque, NM, for example, is a great research destination for those with deep Southwest roots. It has more than 12,500 titles, and an archive with rare books, photos, maps and manuscripts.

  • Search the online catalog (if there is one) for materials you'll want to use.  
  • Call ahead to verify hours and any fees (including acceptable forms of payment), ask about special services such as translation or research consultations. Make an appointment with research center staff if needed.
  • Check the museum's events calendar in case you want to time your visit for a family history workshop or cultural festival (such as Historic Huguenot Street's annual Gathering).
  • Find out about research room rules. For example, you may need to request materials ahead of time so they can be pulled for you, or use only pencils for note-taking.
  • Bring a pedigree chart with as much information as you know. Summarize what you’ve learned about immigrant relatives, even if all you have is stories. “If your family talks about your great-grandfather who always went to the river to catch fish, that can be a clue to a geographic area,” says Karile Vaitikute of the Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture in Chicago.
  • Bring good-quality, full-color copies or high-resolution digital images of any records needing translation.
  • Consider becoming a museum member or making a donation, especially if the research center charges minimal fees. Send a thank-you note to acknowledge help you received.

See Family Tree Magazine's list of 11 Must-Visit Heritage Museums here.

To find museums focusing on your family's heritage, search online for the country or ethnicity plus the words heritage, history or cultural and museum. Add the name of a city or town to narrow results to places in that area.

Worked on Writing assignment help them whilst i was in air pressure. Nicely if its not in a hangar, ours have been stored outdoor unless in for repair or service, just make sure it's far all waterproof , depends if engines are nonetheless outfitted. If not use waterproof covers, i bear in mind using a cleanser/polish on the squares among the body rivets, to get the black deposits off. Took a long time , but it looked lovely when completed, a real vintage cart horse,.. We used them to move items and ferry pilots from united kingdom to all over the global , the huge ones have been hastings,

Fear often keeps us in situations that have long passed their expiration dates. We stay in jobs that we no longer enjoy because we are too scared of uncertainty. We stay in relationships that are unhealthy because we are too scared to be alone Most important academic paper
