Recent lecture on TB sanatoria in the west #usa #jgs-iajgs


I believe one of the JGS from the west coast or SW had a lecture recently about genealogical research related to the TB sanitarian? Can anyone help me locate it?

Not sure which JGS had a recent tuberculosis sanitarium lecture, but any questions about the index to patient applications on JewishGen and the collection of the Jewish Consumptives Relief Society (JCRS) records held at University of Denver are welcome to contact me. I had lectured on this topic about ten years ago when this project was awarded the Stern Grant. JGS Colorado is planning to do an update to these records in the coming year. Search for surnames at
