Jan Meisels Allen

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County
(JGSCV) will meet SUNDAY , January 6 >from 1:30-3:30 pm at Temple Adat
Elohim, 2420 E Hillcrest Drive in Thousand Oaks, CA.

Program: You Can't Find the Records Now What?

What do you do when the records you need don't exist or can't be found? All
too often, disasters (man-made and natural) and the passing of time may
destroy the records we need to trace our families - or maybe the records we
need never existed or are restricted by privacy laws. We will learn how to
explore alternate records to build our family histories in the absence of
"traditional" records.
