JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay February Seminar #general

Sally Israel

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay will offer a two-session seminar
entitled: “The JGSTB 2012 Guide to Jewish Genealogy Research: A Foundation for
Beginners and an Update for Experienced Researchers” on February 12 (Part 1) and
March 11, 2012 (Part 2) at 2:00 PM at Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services, 14041 Icot
Blvd., Clearwater, Florida. Registration will be held at 1:30 PM on both dates. A
seminar booklet summarizing all the material to be presented will be provided and
will be essential for those able to attend only one of the two sessions.

This seminar will focus on developing the proper approaches and applying the
necessary tools, techniques and short cuts to most effectively connect you with
your ancestors in the old country. Internet resources as well as local non-internet
resources will be emphasized to enable the beginner to discover his or her family
history as well as facilitate the experienced researcher in resolving “brick wall”
problems. This seminar is an extensive revision of the presentation given two years
ago; new genealogical resources and new databases will be demonstrated and all
Internet links and sites have been updated.

Dr. Emil H. Isaacson will lead the seminar. Dr. Isaacson has 28 years experience in
genealogy and has researched his ancestral roots back seven generations to the late
1700’s in Europe. He will share his successful and sometimes unsuccessful

The course is free to current paid-up members of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Tampa Bay. A one-year family membership will be included in the $25 course fee for
non-members. An additional $10.00 fee will be charged for seminar materials to
defray printing costs, but only one booklet will be needed per couple or family.
Annual membership in the Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay is $25 per
individual or family.

Anyone interested in learning how to do Jewish genealogical research is invited to
attend. Early registration is recommended so that sufficient copies of the printed
booklet and handouts will be available.
