Re: Finding a Genealogist

It’s imperative to always check the urls one types.
I think you meant ancestry.com . I am a lousy typist and have to constantly correct what I type.
Also, be sure to double check names you type… I think you meant Janette Silverman, not Jeannette.
Also, I think you meant the IAJGS (International Association of Jewish Genealogy Societies).
But Ancestry’s NOT the place to look for her. She’s not dead, so unless one is looking for someone she’s researching….. and can pull up a tree she has posted, he would not find her. Even if he went to “All Directories & Member Lists results for Jeanette Silverman,” there are over 1500 possibles.
Much better to check the Discussion group’s archives, and see if she posted — and if so, get her email address that way.
Another option would be to go Facebook, and check if she’s a member of one of the Jewish Genealogy groups there (Jewish Genealogy Portal, Tracing the Tribe, etc.
Also, one should always include the relevant portion of the email being responded to.
Hope this helps,
