JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen JGS (S.Alberta) March 15th meeting #general

haflo <haflo@...>

On March 15th, Bertha Gold will share her secrets on effective questioning
techniques for fleshing out a family history. For many years now, Bertha
has skillfully interviewed community members on behalf of the Jewish
Historical Society of Southern Alberta. She will give us tips on how to
prompt a subject's memories, win their confidence, & lead the conversation
along appropriate lines. Bertha will also demonstrate how to effectively
tape the interaction. Printed information will be distibuted.
The talk will be followed by a question & answer period, after which we
will have an opportunity to visit the Jewish Historical Society's Harry B.
Cohen Library in the same building. Its extensive genealogical resources
are available for our members to borrow.
