The Northeast Indiana Jewish Genealogy Society is excited to present genealogist, Mark Halpern, on Sunday, February 14th via Zoom.  Mark works with JRI-Poland, JewishGen, the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and others helping others research their roots.  He serves on the Board and Executive Group of JRI-Poland, is the founder of Bialystok Area Jewish Genealogy Group, and is on the Advisory Board of Gesher Galicia.  Mark was honored in 2018 with the IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award.


On February 14th, Mr. Halpern will present two virtual programs, both free and open to the public.  The first, “The Basics of Jewish Research in Poland,” will begin at 2:00.  At 3:30, he’ll present “A Deeper Dive into Galician Records.”  Galicia, a province of Austria-Hungary that is now split between Poland and western Ukraine, is the place of origin for many American Jewish families.
