Program: Sunday, September 28, 2014
Program starts 2:00 p.m.
"Using the Wilmette LDS Family History Center to Find Unusual Resources"
Judith Frazin, former president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Illinois, will speak at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 28, about "Using the
Wilmette LDS Family History Center to Find Unusual Resources" at the
JGSI meeting in Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook.
Her presentation will focus on unusual Chicago, Cook County and Illinois
resources, Internet links and international resources available through
familysearch.org and the Wilmette Family History Center. The emphasis
will be on how to identify these resources and how to use them to find
out information about your family.
A genealogist for 43 years, Judith Frazin has done extensive research on
all the branches of her family. She has written a book about two of her
family branches that has been distributed to family members, and she
served as president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois for
10 years. She is also the author of three editions of A Translation
Guide to 19th-Century Polish-Language Civil Registration Documents
(including Birth, Marriage and Death Records).
In 2010, the International Association of Jewish Genealogists granted
Frazin its award for Outstanding Contribution to Jewish Genealogy via
the Internet, Print or Electronic Product. The Polish Genealogical
Society of America also recognized her contribution to the field of
genealogy by selecting her to receive its Wiglia award in 2000.
The JGSI meeting facilities at Temple Beth-El will open at 12:30 p.m. to
accommodate members who want to use or borrow genealogy library
materials, get help with genealogy websites, or ask genealogical
questions before the main program begins at 2 p.m. For more information,
