Oregon: Film, roots travel, Sept. 16

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Oregon, in Portland, welcomes readers in the area to its first meeting of the program year.

The two-part program includes "Genealogy Successes and Successful Techniques" and the screening of "Beshert," a short film by Rick Kolinsky.

The meeting begins at 6.45pm Tuesday, Sept. 16, at Ahavat Achim Synagogue.

One of the many things that we like about genealogy as a hobby is the opportunity to interact with others as we pursue our goals. We all have stories about how we pursued some item of information and the results we achieved. Learning from each other will help to break through those brick walls we encounter. JGSO's Board Members will lead an open discussion about our experiences.

In the second part of our program, we will show a short film, "Beshert",which chronicles Rick Kolinsky's discoveries on his visit to his ancestral home in Ukraine.

Admission is free for JGSO members; others, $2. For more information, address and more, click here.
