Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland

Sunday July 19, 2015
Save the date for our next meeting!
Please join us on July 19, 2015 at Beth El Congregation (8181 Park Heights Avenue) **NOTE LOCATION** where Lara Diamond will present "Jewish Genealogy--How to Start, Where to Look, What's Available." She will give a comprehensive overview of genealogy resources available for the Jewish genealogist. The presentation will include online sources and documents not yet online for both the United States and Europe; she will also cover some basic knowledge critical to researching one's Jewish roots.

Lara Diamond is President of JGSMD and has been researching her family for 25 years, since she was too young to have a driver's license and had to rely on her mother to drive her to the National Archives. She has traced all branches of her family back to Europe and most multiple generations back using Russian Empire-era records. Most of her research is in modern-day Ukraine, with a smattering of Belarus and Poland. Her genealogy blog is at http://larasgenealogy.blogspot.com.
