I'm in Seattle now visiting with friends and family.
Also, I'll be preparing for a joint program with Lyn Blyden, Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State president, on "Tracing the Tribe: How to Discover Your Jewish Roots."
The session will take place from 10.30am-noon, Tuesday, August 12, at the Mercer Island Community Library, sponsored by the Jewish Family Service's Endless Opportunities education, social, recreational and volunteer activities program for adults aged 50+.
Lyn and I will have an Internet connection and will provide an introduction to using on-line research tools, accessing different types of records, how to conduct oral histories to record the participants' family history and other relevant topics.
If you're in the Seattle area, come along to this free program. I'm looking forward to meeting Tracing the Tribe readers in the area, but please RSVP to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
