Jewish Geneology Society of Colorado presents: Finding Original Jewish Surnames and Towns: Our Ancestors Left Clues #events

Sunday, November 15th
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM Mountain time
Speaker Debbie Schwartz

Successful Jewish Genealogy hinges on two essential facts:  what are the Ancestral surnames and towns (Shtetls) for each branch in your family.  Once you have these, you can attend hundreds of other genealogy sessions online or elsewhere to build your past.  But what if you dont know one or both of those facts?  What do you do?  Where do you start?  Is it even possible to re-capture that crucial information if you know neither?  Using many examples and strategies, I will walk you through each showing examples of how original names and towns can be confirmed many decades after they were forgotten or obscured. 

Debbie Schwartz is past president and programming VP for JGSCO.  Her career in Rights Licensing for an educational publisher required her to find creative ways to locate people that didn't always want to be found.  That experience helped her discover creative ways to find and confirm original ancestral last names and towns using clues left by our ancestors.  She launched a company (oriGen) in 2018 to accomplish similar results for others.  Debbie will share practical and focused ways to find and verify original family names and locations in step-by-step presentations.
