Florida: Research in Israel, October 7

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami will host Harriet Kasow of Israel who will speak on "Family Research in Israel: Personal Experiences," at 10 a.m., Sunday, October 7.

For 20 years, Miami native Kasow was media librarian at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and has been the Israel Genealogical Society librarian for a decade. She graduated from the University of Miami and earned a library degree from Florida State University.

She will present genealogical resources in Israel for family history research based on her own searches. Her mother's BELFER family emigrated from Bar, Ukraine to the US in 1922-23 and her father's SADOVNIK (SADOFF) family emigrated from Chotin, Bessarabia in 1920. Kasow has also researched her husband's KACEW family from Grodno and Lunna, now in Belarus, and his BLOCH and HARMETZ families from Iwye, Belarus and Svencionys, Lithuania.

The meeting will be at the Greater Miami Jewish Federation on Biscayne Boulevard. Picture ID is required for entrance.
