Please join us on Sunday, May 27, 2018, at 1:30 p.m., at the Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, to hear Janice Sellers present “Using Online Historical Jewish Newspapers for Genealogical Research.”
Many historical Jewish newspapers are now available online, with more being added regularly. Most are on free sites. This presentation gives an overview of what is online and where it is, suggests access strategies, discusses what to do if you don’t read Hebrew or Yiddish, and shows sample search results.
Janice M. Sellers is a professional genealogist specializing in Jewish, black, dual citizenship, and newspaper research. She edits two genealogy publications and serves on the board of San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Genealogical Speakers Guild, the Council for the Advancement of Professional Genealogy, the Jewish Genealogical Society of Oregon, and the California Genealogical Society. Her Web site is ancestraldiscoveries.com.
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. Refreshments will be available. 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!
