This workshop will look at how we can discover often unexpected and
fascinating genealogical information when visiting those places where
families lived generations ago.

Online resources can often only help create a partial picture when
compiling a family history. But to get a sense of 'place', there is no
substitute for seeing first-hand where, and how, our families lived,
by visiting those places associated with them, and by accessing
specific archives.

In this presentation, David will talk about how he applied this in
preparing his forthcoming biography on the composer and pianist Gideon
Klein (1919-1945), who was imprisoned in Terezín (Theresienstadt), and
eventually murdered in Auschwitz.

UK-based Musicologist Dr. David Fligg is Project Consultant for
Performing the Jewish Archive (University of Leeds). As a Lecturer in
Academic Studies at Manchesterâ??s Royal Northern College of Music, he
runs the undergraduate elective "Music Under the Third Reich". He is
also Visiting Professor at the University of Chester. His chapter on
Gideon Klein will appear in the forthcoming Routledge Companion to
Music under German Occupation (September, 2018). david.fligg@gmail.com

The international project "Performing the Jewish Archive" is supported
by a large grant >from the UK's Arts and Humanities Research Council.
