Pennsylvania: Daniel Horowitz to speak, Aug. 13

Sorry I received this so late, but readers in the Hollidaysburg (Blair County), Pennsylvania area will have an opportunity to hear Daniel Horowitz tonight (Thursday, August 13) at a meeting of the Blair County Genealogical Society.

The meeting is from 7-9pm, at 431 Scotch Valley Road, Hollidaysburg. There is no charge to attend.

The session will be helpful for those interested in new computer and Internet technologies, conducting general or Jewish family research or just helping others. Find out how to access resources for Jewish research in surprising areas and also learn about resources for pre-state Israel research.

Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, he and his family have lived in Israel since 2005. Daniel is translation and database manager at MyHeritage.com, a genealogical social networking site with many exciting features for connecting families around the world.

He's a computer instructor, teacher/creator of the "Searching for My Roots" genealogy project for young people. He was a founder and lecturer for the Jewish Genealogical Society of Venezuela, and is a member and webmaster of the Israel-based Jewish Family Research Association (JFRA Israel) and the Horowitz Family Association.

He's lectured at several international conferences, and is a board member of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS).
