Finding new ways to trace family roots
March 5, 2021
Are you facing another brick wall? Or have your research efforts plateaued out with nothing new on the horizon?
Marion Wehrle has a cure for that with suggestions for new avenues to explore and strategies for finding information you didn't know you could. Join the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Orlando at its next Zoom meeting on March 9, 7 p.m., and learn how to dig deeper into resources to advance your family history.
Werle began family history research over 25 years ago, researching family from Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus, who settled in the US, Canada, UK, and Israel. She has been on the boards of the Jewish Genealogical Societies of both Los Angeles and Conejo Valley, is a past president of the Latvia SIG (Special Interest Group) and a co-director of the JewishGen Latvia Research Division. A retired IT professional with master's degrees in both European History and Library Science from UCLA, she has also completed the Boston University Certificate in Genealogical Research and the ProGen study group. Marion has written two unpublished family histories, The Skuders from Skud, about one of her family branches from Lithuania, and a history of her brother-in-law's family, The Wilsons of Washington County, Pa., from Hopewell Township to Santa Ana, California. She has spoken at several IAJGS conferences, as well as genealogical societies in the Southern California area, and is scheduled to give multiple virtual presentations in the coming year. She was a member of the Southern California Genealogical Society Writers Group for several years, which gave her the opportunity to hone her family history writing skills. She teaches a writing class for JewishGen education.
