Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland


Sunday September 22, 2019
Save the date for our next meeting!
Please join us on Sunday, September 22, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. at the Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, when Stephen P. Morse presents our next program: “One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools.”

The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterward, it was expanded to help with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years, it has continued to evolve and today includes about 300 web-based tools divided into 16 separate categories, ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on eBay. This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one.

Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website, for which he has received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society, first-ever Excellence Award from the Association of Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce from Polish genealogical societies.

In his other life, Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in electrical engineering. He has held various research, development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical papers, written four textbooks, and holds four patents. He is best known as the architect of the Intel 8086 (the granddaddy of today's Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution nearly 40 years ago.

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. 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!
