Please join us on Sunday January 24 at 1:30PM for Fred Blum's presentation “How to Locate Individuals Through Genealogy Research.”
Zoom information will be sent out midweek, the WEEK BEFORE THE MEETING, to JGSMD members.
Fred Blum will give a talk titled, “How to Locate Individuals Through Genealogy Research”. He will cover the techniques he used to find members of his own family. He will also discuss his volunteer work with the International Red Cross Tracing Service and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, finding survivors who were children during the Holocaust.
Frederick A. Blum, after founding his own firm in 1971 to provide services to attorneys, became president of B & R Services for Professionals, the Philadelphia area’s largest service company providing court filings, court reporting and process serving, locally, nationwide and worldwide.
In 1988, Fred obtained his Private Detective license.
Using his investigative skills, in June 1988 he started research on his family. He has constructed a family tree with over 1,200 family members from around the world, dating back to 1810.
In 2005, Fred became a volunteer for the International Red Cross Tracing Service. For that work he has received local and international volunteer of the year awards. In 2007, he was elected president of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Philadelphia. He is the immediate past president of the JGSGP. In 2008, Fred was elected to the board of the Philadelphia Jewish Archives and is now serving as vice
President. Fred is now serving as co-host of the 2021 IAJGS conference scheduled for August 2 to 5 in Philadelphia.
