Wednesday, August 12
From the Canary Islands to Maryland
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Meeting will be virtual using Zoom
 
Speaker: Aixa Ribeiro
 
Aixa Riberio traced the Franco branch of her family to the Canary Islands using the search methods she learned from lecturers and other members of the Howard County Genealogical Society. In this presentation she will tell us how she built a narrative about her ancestors migration from the Canary Islands based on information collected from stories shared by family members, family photos and documents, Church and Civil Registration Records, Census Forms, DNA results, DNA matches, Member Trees at Ancestry, and books and websites about Canary Island migrations to Puerto Rico, and to Maryland. 
 
Aixa is a member of HCGS who was born in Puerto Rico and became interested in genealogy when in 1998 her daughter’s fourth grade teacher asked her to talk to the class about the “immigration” of her family to the US. Investigations into her family history and origins followed and, of course, continue to this day.
