Announcement: JGS of Colorado

"What's Jewish about Jewish Genealogy: Naming Patterns; Calendar; Gravestones; Lifecycle, etc." with Ellen Kowitt

Sunday, January 22nd from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in Denver at the Congregation
Hebrew Education Alliance, 3600 South Ivanhoe Street,  Denver
No cost for JGSCO members
$30 for non-members (includes one year membership in the JGSCO)


A great session topic to jump into and start or re-start your research! What are the uniquely Jewish clues that will guide you in researching Jewish family history? Come to this session for a primer on customs, traditions and resources including gravestones that are used to successfully navigate Jewish genealogy.


This lecture and workshop is the third in a series (note that each session is independent of the others; come to as many or as few as you'd like) as a part of the seven-session Jewish Family Tree Initiative: Workshop and
Mentoring Series. Led by members of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado, the program was developed to help you get started doing Jewish family history research.


Each session includes an instructional lecture and a hands-on workshop to assist with the creation of family trees and historical research utilizing genealogical resources and techniques. Mentoring assistance outside of class will be available. The sessions are open to everyone. There is an $30 one-time fee for non-members for a book and materials which includes one year of membership in the Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado. Attendance is not required at all seven sessions to participate; jump in any time to get started!
