"Calling All Readers: A Literary Trove for Jewish Genealogists"

The next meeting of the JGSMD will be held on March 23, 2014, from
1:00 to 3:00 p.m., in the chapel of Ner Tamid Synagogue (6214 Pimlico
Rd, Baltimore). Ellen Cassedy, author of We Are Here: Memories of the
Lithuanian Holocaust, will present "Calling All Readers: A Literary
Trove for Jewish Genealogists." Learn about an array of literary
treasures that will educate, inspire, and entertain you as you pursue
your Jewish family roots. Ellen Cassedy will introduce you to fiction,
memoirs, genealogical journeys, children's books, and a few odd
findings she promises you've never heard of. Through images,
descriptions, and very brief excerpts, you'll learn about books that
bring to life the experiences of our forebears in the Old Country,
elucidate the Jewish immigrant experience, and illuminate the quest
for family roots. Be ready to add your own suggestions. You'll come
away with a reading list of terrific reads and a list of blogs and web
sites for further browsing.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD). Refreshments will be
available. Please check our web site at www.jewishgen.org/JGS-Maryland
for late updates and for the time, location, and program of future
meetings.
