Thanks for posting to History Hub!
If your ancestor testified before a congressional committee, the best way to search for a hearing transcript is through a subscription database called ProQuest Congressional. ProQuest's Congressional Hearings Digital Collection allows you to search by witness name and download the full text of hearing transcripts from 1824 to the present. I suggest contacting a local academic or law library to find access to ProQuest Congressional. You may also wish to search online. Select hearing transcripts are digitized and available for free using sites such as HathiTrust Digital Library. For more information, check out this useful blog from the Library of Congress: How to Locate a Published Congressional Hearing.
If you have any questions concerning the unpublished records of congressional committees, particularly the House Committee on Foreign Affairs or the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, we encourage you to search our catalog and contact an archivist at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope this information is helpful!
