We invite you to attend the next presentation in our series of JewishGen Talks webinars:
 
What Jewish Genealogists Need to Know about Jewish Given Names
Speaker: Dr. Sallyann Amdur Sack 
Tuesday, April 13, 2021 @ 2:00 PM Eastern Time
 
Registration is free with a suggested donation.
 
About the Talk
All genealogy research starts with names. Though that statement seems simple enough, in the world of our ancestors, names and the issues governing them, could be quite complex. Among other topics, this talk will cover how Jews got their names, what names were chosen, amuletic names, diminutives and spelling, and what happened to names after emigration from Eastern and Central Europe. A case study will demonstrate how understanding all of the above demolished a long-standing brick wall and carried the Amdur family tree back to the early 1700s.
