Oregon: Searching for Mrs. Buchholz, Sept. 21

Margot Perry will detail her search for Mrs. Buchholz, a distantly-related housekeeper who lived with her family at the next Jewish Genealogical Society of Oregon meeting on Tuesday, September 21.

The program begins at 7pm, at Congregation Ahavath Achim, 3225 SW Barbur Blvd., Portland.

While growing up, Perry did not ask questions about Buchholz, a refugee from Nazi Germany. Recently, Perry decided to use her research skills to learn more about the woman.

Learn why she conducted the search and her successful methodology.

A former investigator for the Oregon Bureau of Labor, Civil Rights Division as an investigator of complaints alleging discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations, Perry is interested in history, genealogy and archeology.

Avotaynu recently published an article about Perry's Buchholz search.
