The secrets about family history publishing


Marlis Glaser Humphrey

Join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando (JGSGO) on March 3, at the Roth JCC, for a program featuring IAJGS President Marlis Humphrey, who will speak on "What they don't tell you about family history publishing."

Researching family history is one big challenge. Determining how to compile and publish treasured collections of genealogy is another significant task. New genealogists need help from experienced genealogists who have "been there, done that" to make their efforts more successful, efficient, and enjoyable. JGSGO's speaker is highly qualified in these areas, and will present a number of helpful tips in this presentation.

Humphrey is president of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS), and a former vice president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando (JGSGO), and vice president and Technology Outreach Committee chairwoman for the Florida State Genealogical Society (FSGS). Humphrey recently received the FSGS 2014 Distinguished Service award. She has successfully discovered all her ancestral shtetls. 

Humphrey also is founder of myAncestories, a company that helps genealogists create family histories to treasure. She holds a B.A. in Russian and an M.S. in Management of Technology.

JGSOGO's program runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Prior to the program, starting at 6:30 p.m. there will be time for newcomers, guests, and members to network, and to receive free consulting assistance or mentoring from a Jewish genealogy maven. The meeting is open to the public and is free for members, $5 for nonmembers (which can be applied to membership).
