Pamela Weisberger 

Pamela Weisberger’s first job in the film industry was working for Otto Preminger who never took no for an answer. This was perfect training for becoming a genealogist. She is currently the program chair for the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles, President and Research Coordinator for Gesher Galicia, and a co-chair for the 2010 IAJGS Los Angeles Conference. Documenting her family’s history for over twenty-five years, she has traveled throughout Eastern Europe visiting ancestral towns and villages and conducting research in Polish, Ukrainian and Hungarian archives. A special area of interest has been late 19th to early 20th century city directories, newspapers and court records. She has also produced the documentaries, “I Remember Jewish Drohobycz,” and “Genealogy Anyone? Twenty-Five Years in the Life of the JGSLA,” and coordinated the IAJGS Conference’s 2006-2009 film festivals. She holds a B.A. in English from Washington University in St. Louis and an M.S. in Broadcasting from Boston University and lives in Santa Monica, California, where she continues to do professional research of all kinds.
