San Francisco: Intro to Jewish Genealogy, Nov. 21

Learn all about Jewish genealogy with Dale Friedman of the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society, on Sunday, November 21.

Doors open at 12.30pm and the free program begins at 1pm at Congregation Beth Israel Judea, 625 Brotherhood Way, San Francisco. There is free parking.

What exactly is "Jewish genealogy" and what might you learn about yourself by doing family history research? Join Friedman as he explores the "Jewish" in Jewish genealogy and shares what he has learned.

Where do I come from, how did my ancestors shape me, how did they shape my Jewish community? Jewish genealogy is one way to help answer these questions.

He'll explore how to start your Jewish genealogy, suggest research methods and resources, and illustrate with personal examples. Learn about many exciting new developments in Jewish genealogy and receive informative handouts.

Friedman will also speak about the benefits of working with other researchers who share your ancestral home.

An SFBAJGS board member, Friedman has been exploring the family history of all sides of his family and his wife's family for the last decade. He is also the co-administrator of a Google Group focusing on Rohatyn in Galicia
