My Jewish Roots workshop rescheduled for Oct. 26


The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando (JGSGO) is sponsoring “My Jewish Roots,” a series of workshops that provide the tools to help attendees discover/build their family tree.

The second in the series of workshops will be “Connect to the Experts and Key Resources” with Marlis Humphrey, IAJGS president. Originally scheduled for earlier this month, it was postponed due to weather and instead will be held Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2016, 7 p.m.—9 p.m., at the Roth Jewish Community Center, 851 N. Maitland Ave., Maitland, FL 32751.

The workshop will cover all of the best opportunities to learn from others; how to stay current on the latest developments such as Facebook groups, Wiki pages, Jewish Genealogy on YouTube, and many other resources to get your questions answered; and the best ways to bait for unknown cousins who may have information that you’re missing.

The workshop is free and open to the public. Please bring your own laptop to participate in the lab portion. It is also possible to attend live via the Internet.

At each workshop, we will give away as a door prize a free one-year Ancestry.com World Explorer membership. You must pre-register for the workshop and attend in-person to be entered into the door prize drawing.

Pre-registration is required to participate either in-person or online: http://www.jgsgo.org/MyJewishRoots.

These workshops will help the Orlando Jewish community get the most out of the upcoming 37th Annual International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) International Conference on Jewish Genealogy. This premiere international conference will be held for the first time in Florida July 23-28, 2017 at the Disney Swan Hotel with local host JGSGO.
