40+ genealogists to research ancestry of Chicago, US, author Scott Turow: Turowetzky, Rabinovitz, Pastron, Epstein #announcements

Karen Joyce Lowe

A group of genealogists working around the world will collaborate September 1–8 on the ancestry of US author Scott Turow, whose books include Presumed Innocent and The Burden of Proof. JewishGen members are welcome to join in to experience researching with a crowd. I'm always amazed by what is accomplished in such a short time. We'll be working with ancestors in Belarus and Minsk for certain, with cousins in the US, and then wherever the family lines take us. 

Feel free to check out Mr. Turow's tree as it grows in the coming days on the Family Tree tab here, or click through to the discussion posts on the right to join in:
