Orlando: New methods of publishing family history, January 25

New ways to publish family history, with speaker Marlis Humphrey, is the topic at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando (Florida) on Tuesday, January 25.

The meeting begins at 1pm at the Congregation Reformed Judaism, 928 Malone Drive, Orlando. There is no admission fee to attend.

"I couldn't put it down! - New ways to publish family history," will provide ideas, techniques, checklists, templates and samples for new methods of publishing family history.

Humphrey has approached genealogy with  a unique perspective on how advances in multimedia applications can enrich the sharing of family history. She has more than two decades experience in high tech computer and broadband communications at major corporations.
Her first major accomplishment was finding the shtetls for all of her great-grandparents.  She recently returned from a roots trip to Cleveland where she met her 88-year-old great aunt for the first time and located dozens of ancestors in three Jewish cemeteries. She has discovered ancestors in the 1897 Census of the Russian Empire. 
 
Currently, she is the JewishGen Ukrainian SIG project coordinator and has translated Russian cemetery records and ghetto lists held by the US Holocaust Museum. She has approached genealogy with  a unique perspective on how advances in multimedia applications can enrich our sharing of family history.
