The Austro-Hungarian Empire:
Conventional and Non-Conventional Resources

Speaker: Henry Wellisch

Henry Wellisch escaped in 1940 >from Vienna, where he was born. Over
20 years ago he began to investigate his family background, has
concentrated his research on the Austro-Hungarian Empire and has
traced his family back into the 18th century. He has published
numerous articles, including the section on Austria for the Avotaynu
Guide to Jewish Genealogy, and has presented lectures to various
genealogical groups, including the 1999 international IAJGS
conference in New York. He served as president of the JGS of Canada
from 1993 to 1998.
