Miami: Breaking brick walls, Jan. 18

Brick walls will be smashed - we hope - at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami, beginning at 10am, Sunday, January 18.

The group's popular Q&A session will focus on trying to break down impeding walls, brick by brick. DNA guru Professor Abe Lavender will moderate. Additionally, New Yorker Steve Lasky, curator of the virtual Museum of Family History, is planning to participate and contribute his expertise, pending his schedule.

All attendees (members or not) are encouraged to jump in with any and all questions or to help answer any question asked. This session offers a chance to help solve puzzles, conundrums and problems and have some of your own solved. Do you have a question that's been bothering you for a long time, but you never knew whom to ask? This is your chance.

The group's president, Joan Parker, reminds prospective attendees that there is no such thing as a silly or stupid question, so don't be shy!. Everyone is welcome and non-member guests can also bring their brick walls.

Meetings, with light refreshments, are held at the Greater Miami Jewish Federation building on Biscayne Boulevard (entrance and parking at rear of building; bring picture ID).
