The Seminar will be conducted by Robert Jerin, Director of the Croatian Heritage Museum and Library in Cleveland, Ohio, and Croatian genealogy researcher.

Mr. Jerin will present such topics as the history and origin of Croatia and Croatians; how our ancestors lived in the "Old Country"; Croatian immigration to the United States and the journey to America; how to get started with your family tree; the do's and do not's of genealogy; how
to translate Croatian records; how to locate records such as birth records, marriage records, death records, and census records in the United States and Croatia; the meaning and categories of surnames; And figuring out family relationships.

Also demonstrated in the seminar will be the value of the internet in doing family research online. Mr. Jerin's seminar will be done with a Power Point Presentation.

The Seminar will cost $35 per person, which includes lunch and Mr. Jerin's handbook, "Searching for Your Croatian Roots", ordinarily sold for $26 per book. Robert Jerin also offers research assistance to seminar participates as often as they need it in their future research.
