“FINDING ANCESTORS WITH HOLOCAUST RESEARCH”

ORLANDO, FL, May 12, 2017 — Start on a family discovery journey with the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando (JGSGO) as it wraps up this year’s “My Jewish Roots” a JGSGO Workshop Roadshow in anticipation of the upcoming IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy starting July 23 in Orlando.

The June 8th “My Jewish Roots” Workshop, “Finding Ancestors with Holocaust Research”, will cover the many free resources available to search for ancestors - both those who perished and those who survived the Holocaust. JGSGO President, Jerry Kurland, observed, “There are both records and recountings of the Shoah that can provide clues and evidence of our ancestors – often leading us to reconnect with extended family.”

Marlis Glaser Humphrey will lead the workshop. Marlis is the President of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and President of the Florida State Genealogical Society (FSGS), a world-known lecturer, and has discovered all her ancestral shtetls. Marlis and JGSGO mavens will assist workshop attendees as they pursue their family discovery journey on their own laptops – a hands-on lab that will lead to extending their family tree – adding newly discovered ancestors and living cousins.

“Finding Ancestors with Holocaust Research” with Marlis Humphrey will be held: Thursday, June 8, 2017, 7:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M. at Rosen JCC S 11184 Apopka Vineland Rd, Orlando FL. The workshop is FREE and open to the public. It is a great opportunity to grow your family tree and prepare to get the most out of the upcoming premier International Conference on Jewish Genealogy being held in Orlando in July. Bring your own laptop to participate in the lab portion. It is also possible to attend via the Internet. Pre-registration is required. Pre-register for either in-person or online participation at www.jgsgo.org/MyJewishRoots.
