Please join the Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland on Sunday,
January 24, 2016, for our next program: 'Ask the Experts!'
Panelists who are experienced in Jewish genealogy research will help guide you
on ways forward in research and will give advice on places to look to
break through a brick wall.
Please send questions in advance to JGSofMD@...; a selection of
those questions will be addressed by the panel. Please be specific in
what you are looking for and what you have already tried. Give as much
background information as possible. In addition, we'll have an open
floor at the end for additional questions.
Our panelists are:
Lara Diamond - Lara is President of JGSMD and has been researching her
family for more than 25 years, since she was too young to have a
driver's license and had to rely on her mother to drive her to the
National Archives. She has traced all branches of her family back to
Europe and most lines multiple generations back using Russian
Empire-era records. Most of her research is in modern-day Ukraine,
with a smattering of Belarus and Poland. Her genealogy blog is at
Carol Rombro Rider - Carol has been interested in researching her
family ever since she discovered that almost no one else in the world
shared her surname. Forty years later, using every conceivable
resource, she has discovered the difficulty but delight in research.
Learning to 'think outside the box' has made all the difference in the
world. Her research areas include Baltimore, Ukraine, Lithuania,
Belarus, Poland, Mexico, Israel, and Romania. A trip to Romania
several years ago was the highlight of her research.
The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
