Two genealogy pros to help with family trees


August 30, 2019

Dr. Diane Jacobs

Looking for help to build your family tree? Then come to the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando on Sept. 3, to jumpstart your research. Two career medical professionals who have been doing genealogy for years will share with you many valuable lessons they just learned from the world's top genealogists.

Dr. Diane Jacobs, and Dr. Richard Signer of Central Florida recently attended the annual conference held by the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies. Jacobs and Signer learned the latest in technology, DNA, research techniques, and other important areas of genealogy, and you can hear their presentation at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando. The presentations Jacobs and Signer will give at that meeting will equip and inspire you to new achievements in finding and sharing your family's story.

Dr. Richard Signer

Jacobs is the current president of the JGSGO, and has been doing genealogy research for more than 20 years. She retired from the University of Central Florida in 2016, completing 40 years as a tenured medical school faculty member. She was a co-chair of IAJGS 2017. Signer was the second pediatric surgeon in the Central Florida, and was a founder of both Arnold Palmer and Florida Hospitals for Children. He was a pediatric surgeon here for 32 years and was the chief medical officer of Florida Hospital for Children for 14 years, retiring in 2016.

The meeting will be in the Senior Lounge, at The Roth Family Jewish Community Center, 851 North Maitland Ave., Maitland, from 7-9 p.m. Before the meeting, there is an informal dialogue to help you make friends with other genealogists, and share ideas and tips to make your research more efficient, more effective, and more rewarding.

Meeting admission is free to members. There is a $5 fee for guests, which is credited to your membership, if you join. Membership is open to anyone interested in Jewish genealogy.
