Jewish genealogical societies often have excellent reference libraries built up over the years. Researchers in a locality where such a society exists should investigate the library's holdings.
The Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State will offer an overview of the hidden treasures in its library on Monday, April 12, at 7pm.
The venue is the auditorium at the Stroum Jewish Community Center, Mercer Island, Seattle. Wi-Fi is available, so bring your laptops.
The society's library will be available in its entirety. The evening will be spent browsing books and researching. JGS "mavens" will be available to answer questions, and there will be some extra computers available for internet research.
For directions and more information, visit the JGSWS website. Fee: JGSWS members: free; others, $5.
