Similar to other Americans, those whose ancestors come from Arab-identified countries of the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region can find clues to their family history in traditional genealogical sources. This presentation will introduce tips and tricks to conducting Arab American genealogical research. Beyond traditional resources, unique record groups specific to the Arab American experience will be addressed.
