JGSGO mavens set to answer brick-wall questions

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando (JGSGO) is presenting a roundtable discussion featuring genealogy brick-wall problems and solutions.

Many genealogists encounter one or more brick walls when researching their family history. The paper trail seems to vanish. Their ancestors may have changed their names. All sources seem to have been exhausted. The trail has run dry. They may have run out of ideas on where to look next.

Bring your brick-wall genealogy problem to the JGSGO’s mavens. In advance of the April 30 meeting, submit a research problem statement, description and background for your Jewish genealogy brick-wall problem to jgsgo.maven@gmail.com.

JGSGO asks that you be in attendance at the Brick Wall Roundtable meeting in order to hear what its mavens have discovered. The mavens will share their findings and their research methods. The earlier you submit your brick-wall problem, the more time the mavens will have to research it.

Even if you do not have a brick-wall problem to submit at this time, the JGSGO Brick Wall Roundtable provides a great opportunity to learn Jewish genealogy research methods, said an event planner.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando is a not for profit organization dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research tools with anyone interested in Jewish genealogy and family history. Anyone may join JGSGO. Annual dues are $25 for an individual and $30 for a family.
