Annual Help Day: Research and Translation Assistance
January 19, 2014 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
at Temple Emanuel
Problem-solve with others who can help show you the way. Learn how to get started or get over that “brick wall” in your family research. Members will be able to consult with those more experienced for help with their family research.
You can bring your own laptops for online research.
Roundtables will be dedicated to topics such as:
- Country and region-specific research (e.g., Polish, Lithuanian, Galician, Ukrainian, Belarussian, Romanian, Moldovan, Bessarabian, German)
- Finding your ancestors using immigration, naturalization, and vital records
- Getting started with Jewish genealogy (e.g., using the JewishGen and Steve Morse web sites)
- Holocaust research (e.g., using the Internet, Yizkor books, Yad Vashem)
- Translation of foreign-language documents (Yiddish, Russian, German, French, Polish, Hebrew, Hungarian, Romanian)
(Other topics may be added at a later date.)
Genealogical reference materials will be available for perusal.
Bring in your research questions and your foreign-language documents for translation.
If you plan on coming, please fill out our “Help Day” Questionnaire.
