Florida: Modern researchers' resources, Oct. 14

A professional genealogist who has traced her family back to 1760 and documented more than 6,000 family members will speak on "Genealogy - Then and Now: Resources For the Modern Researcher," at the Jewish Genealogical Society of Palm Beach County, Florida on Thursday, October 14.

Monica Freedman Morris, who began her own research in 1976, will discuss the development of Jewish genealogical research and resource tools available today.

Morris is co-founder and president emerita of the JGSBPCI, and author of “Scattered Seeds: A Guide to Jewish Genealogy.” She has presented many genealogy workshops, been a Palm Beach Community College adjunct professor, keynote speaker at the Professional Librarians Association and presented at the Distinguished Lecturer Series.

The day begins at 12:30pm with a brick wall session, followed at 1pm by a brief business meeting and the main presentation. Poland and Romania special interest groups will also meet at 11.30am.

Meetings are held at the South County Civic Center in Delray Beach, Florida. Fee: JGSPBCI members, free; others, $5.

For more information about the brick wall program or to submit advance questions, email program chair Helene Seaman. For special interest groups, email Marvin Lopatin. For other inquiries and program details, contact Tracing the Tribe's good friend Sylvia Nusinov.
