How to Get Started in Jewish Genealogy

Sunday, October 28, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. New to researching and charting your roots? Here is the perfect opportunity to discover your ancestors and share the information

An overview of what's involved in researching your family history. The presentation by Victoria Fisch will cover online genealogical resources for creating family trees and acquiring data, and computer programs that will allow you to save your research and turn the data into visually appealing charts. Attention will be paid to some of the roadblocks specific to Jewish research and the outstanding work being done to preserve Jewish documents and records.

With her partner, Jeremy G. Frankel, Victoria works as a full-time professional genealogist and has conducted investigations for police and fire departments, academics, and episodes of the television series, “Who Do You Think You Are” and “Finding Your Roots.”
