Join us as we take an intimate look into the Steamship Historical Society of America's research center holdings. Uncover hidden stories within passenger lists, shedding light on the diverse journeys that shaped our ancestry. Presented by Heather Pouliot Kisliywicz.

Her clients benefit from a professional archivist experience in historical societies, corporations, and private collections to track down primary sources that can bust “brick walls”.
