The Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento, California will host Carol Davidson Baird in "Beginning German-Jewish Genealogy from your Easy Chair."
The program begins at 10am, Sunday, November 18, in the Einstein Residence Center.
Baird - who lives in Solana Beach, California - will provide an overview of how to find, translate and understand German records found at home, online, by mail and in local libraries.
She will relate experiences from 35 years of research from pre-computer days to the Internet. Recently returned from Germany, Baird will share current research efforts.
A specialist in German Jewish genealogy and Holocaust research, Baird began to seriously research her family's roots more than 30 years ago when her first son was born. For more than 50 years, she has been collecting family heirlooms, stories and documents.
The only child of German Holocaust survivors, Baird is past president of both the San Diego Jewish Genealogical Society and the North San Diego County Genealogical Society. She speaks to groups and presented at the 2005 International Jewish Genealogy conference, and co-edited Stammbaum – The Journal of German-Jewish Genealogical Research.
