Save the date for our next meeting!
Please join us on Sunday, May 26, 2019, at 1:30 p.m., at the Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, to hear Emily H. Garber present “Memory and Mystery: Breaking Down Family Lore.”

Does your family have bubbe meises that have defied genealogical documentation? What steps should be taken to understand them and determine the truth? In this presentation, Emily Garber explores exhaustively researching our stories by evaluating and melding paper documentation with DNA results.

Emily H. Garber has been researching her own family’s history and her family’s towns since 2007. Her academic background is in anthropological archaeology with degrees from Vassar College and the University of New Mexico. She has earned a certificate from Boston University’s Genealogical Research course. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists.

Emily’s blog, The Extra Yad, is at: https://extrayad.blogspot.com. Her KehilaLinks (town) webpage for her family shtetl can be found at: http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/yurovshchina/index.html.

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