Submit Names for Researching Your Israeli Relatives
ORLANDO, FL, February 3, 2012 — The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando (JGSGO) is soliciting search queries for your Israeli relatives. This is a unique opportunity to have an expert perform research on your behalf, finding those elusive members of your family tree whom you traced to Israel, but could not reach.
Jerusalem based Michael Goldstein, professional genealogist, Israeli family research expert, and president of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, will research the queries he receives and present the results live at the JGSGO’s upcoming meeting on Sunday, March 18, 2012, at 1:00 p.m. at the Southwest Orlando Jewish Congregation. The format for the JGSGO program will be a reality-based session featuring a live demonstration from Jerusalem of how to search for living Israeli relatives.
While success cannot be guaranteed, participants will come away with a practical guide to performing this type of research. Michael is requesting the advance information in order to have sufficient time to research and prepare. Your materials will be used during the talk only if you are at the session. Even if you don’t send in any data in advance, you are still welcome to attend the session and bring your questions about researching people living in Israel.
The deadline for submitting queries is Friday, Feb. 17, 2011 midnight EST. Earlier submissions are preferred. Please submit the names and any information you have to Orlando@jg-research.com .
