Jewish genealogical societies are all kicking off their program years this month. In Oregon, the Jewish Genealogical Society of Oregon will present "New Year, New Ideas, New Info on your Family Tree," on Tuesday, September 15.
The meeting starts at 6.30pm for networking, followed by the main program at 7pm, at Ahavath Achim Synagogue, 3225 SW Barbur Blvd., Portland.
The session will include a wrap-up of the Philly 2009 conference by members who attended, and will share new resources and helpful presentations.
Next on the agenda will be unusual research tips that are simple and effective.
Breaking down brick walls for participants by some of the JGSO experts will be the third segment.
To make sure your problems, dilemmas or questions are addressed, email them to Barbara Hershey in advance. Attendees may also bring questions to the meeting, but advance questions will have the benefit of research by the mavens.
The program is free to JGSO members, $5 for others.
