You are invited to the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles's next program:
Sunday, September 21 at 1:30PM
University Synagogue 11960 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles 90049
A Steve-Morse-a-thon: two lectures sure to get you enlightened and
energized about your own research by the inventor of the One-Step Search Engine:
"One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools"
The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in
the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterwards it was expanded to help
with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years it has continued to
evolve and today includes about 200 web-based tools divided into 16
separate categories ranging >from genealogical searches to astronomical
calculations to last-minute bidding on e-bay. This presentation,
always being updated, will describe the range of tools available and
give the highlights of each one.
followed by.... "Case Study: Genealogy of Renee Kaufman"
This lecture presents a case study using the One-Step Webpages as well
as other websites to develop a family history. It illustrates how,
with a minimal amount of initial information, an entire genealogy can
be obtained. It also shows how to obtain records in spite of name
misspellings, and how to avoid accepting wrong information.
JGSLA members free. Guests $5.00. Refreshments will be served.
Traveling library available at 1:00PM.
