JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Jewish Genealogy of Greater Washington (DC) Sept. Meeting #general


Ben Okner <okner@...>
 

The next meeting of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington
will be held at B'nai Israel Congregation on Sunday, September 10 at
1:30 for the social period with the meeting following >from 2 - 4 p.m.

Genealogical resources at the National Archives II in College Park are the
focus of our first meeting this year. The program features Sallyann Sack,
Roberta Solit, and Suzan Wynne who will discuss the Russian Consular
records and State Department records that contain information about U. S.
citizens living in Romania >from 1860 to 1941. Our experts will describe
what information can be found in these records and how to use them. A
special aspect of this program is that JGSGW members have indexed many of
these materials --including a recently completed database that will be
available for searching for the first time at our meeting. Come at 1:30
p.m. to view and search the new "Danzansky database" that was created
through the efforts of JGSGW volunteers.

B'nai Israel Congregation is located at 6301 Montrose Road, Rockville,
MD. See the JGSGW web site at www.jewishgen.org/jgsgw for directions.

Visitors are always welcome at our meetings.
