Jewish genealogy's own guru, Dr. Stephen P. Morse, will be speaking in Montreal at 7 p.m. Monday, May 21, hosted by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal, in association with the Quebec Family History Society.
He'll focus on "One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools."
Steve's One-Step Web site is one of the most important genealogical research developments, and he has received both the Outstanding Contribution Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies.
A computer professional with a doctorate degree in electrical engineering, his career spans research, development, teaching, consulting, and writing. He is best known as the designer of the Intel 8086 microprocessor (the granddaddy of today's Pentium processor), that sparked the PC revolution 25 years ago.
The meeting is at the Eleanor London Cote Saint-Luc Public Library.
UPDATE - Montreal City Directories
In advance of his visit to Montreal, Morse has created a new One-Step page to quickly search Montreal Lovell's Directories (1842-1978) through the Bibliotheque et Archives Nationales du Quebec
He previously created One-Step search pages for the 1851-1911 Censuses of Canada, the U.S./Canada Border Crossing Records, and the 1841-1901 British Census.
