Family History Today: Mid-1800’s American Jewish Genealogy Research - Resources and Considerations
Monday, December 13, 5 pm Eastern Time / 2 pm Pacific Time (U.S.)
Researching Jewish ancestors who immigrated to the United States in the mid-1800’s can be challenging, as common genealogical resources which exist in later periods may be unavailable or less informative in this period. In this lecture, Nancy Levin, a professional genealogist licensed by the Board for Certification of Genealogists since 1997, will highlight some of the lesser-known resources and special considerations necessary for successful research in mid-1800’s America.
