Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland

Sunday July 30, 2017
Save the date for our next meeting!
Please join us on Sunday, July 30, 2017, at 1:30 p.m., at the Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, to hear Mindie Kaplan present “Organize and Share Your Genealogy: Methods from the Library of Congress.”

Our research can generate a huge mass of names, places, dates, stories, photographs, and even video and audio recordings. Using examples of genealogies housed in the Library of Congress, Mindie Kaplan will showcase different ideas for presenting your work and making that collection of information accessible to others.

Mindie Kaplan has been involved in Jewish genealogy for more than 20 years and has a family tree consisting of more than 3500 individuals. When printed, her Splaver Family Tree is 197 pages long, including photos, biographies, stories, and references. Her Entes Family Tree is 110 pages. She gave a presentation in 2016 at the IAJGS conference in Seattle and has presented programs in the past for both the Maryland and Greater Washington Jewish Genealogy Societies. In addition, she has attended nearly every annual IAJGS conference since the 2003 conference in Washington, DC.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.

News Tidbits

JGS Maryland has been reconstituted!
