“Who Do You Think You Are, Bubala?”

"Who Do You Think You Are, Bubala?"
An Introduction to Jewish Genealogy Webinar

ORLANDO, FL, September 20, 2013 — Join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando (JGSGO) in celebration of International Jewish Genealogy Month, for a free webinar that is certain to kick-start your family tree research.

Have you heard,
"They never talked about it"
"What kind of a name is Tauntie Saucie (i.e. Aunt Sosia)?", or
"All the records were destroyed"?

With some know how and persistence, you can find your Jewish ancestors! Join us for an “Introduction to Jewish Genealogy” webinar.  We will cover:
  • 4 steps to getting started
  • Records you might find & where to find them
  • Available resources, tools, and help

We will show you key documents to help put that family tree together and go further into the past: census; birth, death, and marriage certificates; city directories, cemetery records and obituaries, social security records, draft and military records, naturalization papers, ships passenger lists, tax records, pages of testimony, liberation records and more. 

Nothing is more exciting than discovering a new cousin, an unknown ancestor, or the real name of the shtetl where they once lived. Learn how to begin that journey of discovery with Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando experts.

Webinar presenter, Marlis Glaser Humphrey, is Vice President of Programs and Publicity for the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando (JGSGO), Publications and Technology Outreach Committee Chairs for the Florida State Genealogical Society (FSGS), President of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS), Co-Chair for the IAJGS Boston 2013 Conference, and a member of the IAJGS Membership Development Committee responsible for the Southeastern U.S. Region. She has successfully discovered all her ancestral shtetls. Marlis holds a B.A. in Russian and an M.S. in Management of Technology. You can reach Marlis at jgsgo.programs@gmail.com.
