"Life Under the Tsars: Registration, Residence and Exit Routes".
Alan Shuchat, retired professor at Wellesley College will discuss: How did our ancestors obtain steamship tickets and travel from their shtetls to the steamship ports? Records from the Russian Empire show that people were often registered as citizens of one town but lived in another. What was the system of registration and residence permits under the Tsars and later in the Soviet Union? How were people divided into social estates? How can these records and historical knowledge help us trace our families before they emigrated?
