Please join us virtually on Sunday June 26 at 1:30PM for Kaye Prince-Hollenberg's presentation "Landscape of Dreams: Jewish Genealogy in Canada."
Zoom information will be sent out midweek, the WEEK BEFORE THE MEETING, to JGSMD members.
The landscape of Canada is extensive, and so are our genealogy resources! In this presentation we'll take a look at accessing some of the most common Canadian genealogy documents available online including census, immigration, military, and vital records. We'll also explore the abundant number of Canadian Jewish specific resources including archives and heritage organizations, newspapers, and digitized books.
Kaye Prince-Hollenberg is a professional genealogist based in Hamilton, Ontario Canada. She specializes in Jewish Genealogy, Holocaust Research, and Genetic Genealogy. A Librarian by day, Kaye can often be found hosting genealogy workshops, helping others with their research, and acting as a Search Angel for Canadian adoptees. She is the JRI-Poland town leader for Korolowka and Zaleszczyki, and is currently working on a multi-year project to trace and document Jewish families and Holocaust survivors from the town of Korolowka.

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!
