Southern California: Five authors to speak, January 9

Five published authors are on the program of the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County, set for Sunday, January 9.

The authors will speak about their books at the meeting - co-sponsored by Temple Adat Elohim - which will begin at 1.30pm at the congregation, 2420 E. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks. There is no admission charge.

Speaking will be:

-- Warren Blatt is one of the original authors who wrote a book on techniques and resources for doing Jewish genealogy, "Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy."

-- Werner Frank researched his multi-generational family history on the German-Jewish experience going back 800 years including the impact of the Holocaust: "Legacy: The Saga of a German-Jewish Family Over Time and Circumstance."

-- Erica Miller, PhD takes us from her childhood in Romania, to life under a brutal Nazi regime, emigration to Israel, and eventual emergence as a dedicated mental health professional in America: "The Dr.Erica Miller Story: From Trauma to Triumph."

-- Helene Rosen created a family book for her children with copies of family photographs. Anyone can use this technique for their family photographs: "Our Family in Pictures."

-- Mark Abbott Stern wrote a biography of US colonial Jewish businessman - David Franks - from his beginnings in a prominent Jewish family to his trials for treason and exile in the post-Revolutionary period: "David Franks; Colonial Merchant."

Dr. Miller will hold a book signing at the meeting's end (cash and checks only).
