The Journey Takers

Tuesday, July 6 at 7:00pm

Northland Library is pleased to welcome genealogist and freelance writer, Leslie Albrecht Huber, for a presentation on her book The Journey Takers. The author re-creates the immigrant experience of nineteenth century Europeans through the story of her own ancestors who made their way from Germany, Sweden and England to start new lives in the United States. Huber visited their homelands, walked in their footsteps and looked over the lands they farmed in the course of her extensive research for the book.

Leslie Huber's articles and essays have won numerous awards in genealogy publications and her lectures to history groups throughout New England have been widely praised. Her presentation will be very helpful for those tracing their immigrant ancestors. The Journey Takers will be available for purchase after the program. Please register for the programs using our library website's Events calendar or by visiting or calling the Adult Services Reference Desk at 412-366-8100, extension 113.
