LAPL is looking for an expert to present a beginning Jewish genealogy session (online) #education
Julie Huffman <jhuffman@...>
I'm the genealogy librarian at the Los Angeles Public Library, and I've been asked time and again to facilitate a presentation on beginning Jewish genealogy (the challenges, the resources, etc.). So, I'm reaching out to the JewishGen community to see if anyone might be interested!
I have a monthly genealogy program called Genealogy Garage that has been very well attended ever since I switched to the online format (LAPL broadcasts it live on its Facebook and YouTube channels). Here is a link to our Armenian Genealogy program that took place last Saturday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qgRhtKTrO0
It normally occurs on the third Saturday of the month, but I'm happy to reschedule for Friday (or any other day) due to the Sabbath. Ideally, I'm looking for someone who might be able to do it in July or August. Our sessions are usually 1 - 1.5 hours long, with questions & answers from the audience. I'd love to be able to keep the recorded version of the presentation live on our website for future referrals.
Oh, and, I don't have any money to pay our presenters--but the exposure is dynamite! ☺
Thanks for any consideration, and feel free to respond to me directly at jhuffman@....
