JEWISH GENEALOGY RESEARCH
Presented by Linda Carlson

1:30 PM - Nosh
2:00 PM-4:00 PM - Program

Have you always wanted to start working on your genealogy but didn't know how to get started? Have you always believed that there are no records on your family? Do you wonder where your family came from? Was your family name changed "at Ellis Island" and no one knows the original name?

Come and learn how to find the answers to your questions.

Presentation will cover some of the common methods of doing genealogy from a Jewish perspective. Content will include ship records, Ellis Island, name changes, naturalization, reading gravestones, finding towns in Europe, Holocaust records, Jewish DNA, and more.

Linda is a professional genealogist specializing in doing research for information that is not available online. She is a member of the Connecticut Professional Genealogists Council and on the Board of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut, and the Connecticut Society of Genealogists.

This presentation is provided as a partnership between Middlesex Genealogical Society of Darien, CT, and the Jewish Historical Society of Fairfield County, Stamford, CT.

Sponsor: Darien Library, Middlesex Genealogical Society of Darien, CT, and the Jewish Historical Society of Fairfield County
