Date: 10/15/2019
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
 This four week introduction to genealogy is intended for those who have recently started to explore their family's history or those who want to and don't know how to begin. In session two, we will examine how to interview family members and record their information and look more deeply into sources of information other than family memory. We'll examine U.S. and state censuses, directories, and phone books, social security records, and documents associated with immigration and naturalization. We'll conclude with a look at vital records (birth, marriage, and death) and discover what we can learn in cemeteries. Presented by Dr. Alan Steinfeld. Dr. Steinfeld has been exploring his family’s genealogy for over 40 years. A native of New York City, he traces his ancestry to Russia and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. His studies have turned up over 2500 relatives and have stimulated a book on the subject as well as a family newsletter, now in its 30th year. His support of the larger genealogy community includes participation in the indexing of records for the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry and the American Jewish Historical Society. Registration is required. Participants are encouraged to attend all four weeks. Registering at the October 8 calendar entry registers you for the full four-weeks.
