JGS of Pittsburgh Presents: Mark Halpern "Understanding Your Galitzianer Family through Vital Records" #austria-czech #poland #galicia #ukraine #records
The next program from the Jewish Genealogy Society of Pittsburgh
This session offers an in-depth examination of vital records along with a strategic framework to help researchers in acquiring Galician records to further their research. We will provide a historical perspective covering the regulations that governed Jewish record keeping. We will make sense of the regulations covering civil marriages that impacted the legitimacy and surnames of children. Close examination of sample birth, marriage, and death records will reveal the information contained in the records, identify the records having the most genealogical value, and discover surprises found in many of these records.
This program is made possible by support from the William M. Lowenstein Genealogical Research Endowment Fund at the Jewish Community Foundation.
