Tracing Your Jewish Genealogy

The Southbury Public Library will have a discussion on tracing you Jewish ancestors with Marian Wood on Friday, October 28th at 2pm in the Kingsley room.

Marian will help participants trace their ancestors by focusing on five key websites. This step-by-step presentation will demonstrate how to plan Jewish genealogy search strategies, identify specialized sources and databases, and locate specific documents using JewishGen.org, YadVashem.org, CyndisList.com, FamilySearch.org, and Facebook's Tracing the Tribe Jewish genealogy page.

Marian Wood is a marketing expert turned professional textbook author who has been tracing her family tree since 1998. She is a frequent speaker at genealogy clubs around Connecticut and New York, making presentations on topics such as Jewish genealogy, online genealogy research, and organizing family history materials.

Registration is required. Please call the library at 203-262-0626 ext. 130

Sponsored by the Janet Mann Gift Fund.
