Find out about your Ashkenazic ancestors from 200 years ago, when they took family names: what kind of work they did, what their first names were, how they looked or behaved, what their socio-economic status was, and where you came from. Learn the etymology of the names of many celebrities, friends, co-workers, etc. The presentation will consist of a brief history of Ashkenazic family names and an in-depth analysis of Ashkenazic patronymics, matronymics, occupational names, geographical names, nicknames, and more.
Presented by KlezCalifornia on Zoom. Co-presented by Jewish Community Library and San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society
Registration closes four hours before event begins.
