Please join JGSMD on October 25, 2015 at 1:30PM to hear Logan Kleinwaks speak about "GenealogyIndexer.org: New Sources, New Ways To Search." The meeting will be held at the Hadassah meeting room, 3723 Old Court Rd (Dumbarton Offices entrance), Pikesville.
GenealogyIndexer.org is a free website enabling full-text and Soundex search of more than 700,000 pages of historical business, address, and telephone directories from primarily Eastern and Central Europe, more than 150 Yizkor books, Polish and Russian military documents, community and personal histories, Galician secondary school reports, and more. Containing millions of personal names – often with towns, street addresses, and occupations, and sometimes with vital dates or patronymics – this huge collection is mostly comprised of data not searchable elsewhere. This talk will focus on newly added sources and new search functionality. Recipient of the IAJGS 2012 Award for Outstanding Contribution to Jewish Genealogy via the Internet, Print or Electronic Product and one of Family Tree Magazine's 101 Best Websites for 2015.
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.

JGS Maryland has been reconstituted!
JGSMD had its initial meeting on Sunday August 18, 2013 to see if there was interest in the group's reconstituting. The turnout was overwhelming, with 31 people attending with only a few days' notice. Look forward to new programming over the next year!
