Hello all! The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island is delighted to invite you to our November monthly meeting featuring our guest speaker, Jeanette Rosenberg.


JGSLI is extending the invitation to the broader genealogy community. We ask that you register in advance (see below). Please share with your friends!

Sunday, November 22nd, 2:00 PM, via Zoom

Speaker: Jeanette R. Rosenberg, OBE
Topic: UK Research for Non-Natives

A professional genealogist, Jeanette Rosenberg holds a postgraduate diploma in genealogical studies. She is the Education and Mentoring lead for the JGS of Great Britain and chairs its German Special Interest Group. As a director of JewishGen’s GerSIG from 2009 to 2019, she coordinated its presentations at many IAJGS conferences. In February 2016, Jeanette received an Order of the British Empire award, one of the UK’s highest honors, for her services to the disabled.

Jeanette will describe resources available for research on families who lived in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Island – including civil and Jewish records, newspaper archives, maps, and directories – and how to access them from outside the UK. Her talk will also cover the geography and history that you need to know to undertake successful research in UK records.
