JGS of Pittsburgh presents Crista Cowan: "The Jewish Record Collection on Ancestry" #jgs-iajgs #announcements #records
Please join The Jewish Genealogy Society of Pittsburgh for our next program with Crista Cowan from Ancestry.com.
With more than 24 billion online records, Ancestry has a lot to offer Jewish family history researchers. Join Crista Cowan for a look at records in the United States, Canada, and England specific to Jewish immigrants, as well as tips for researching the millions of JewishGen records, Holocaust records, and other European records from the 18th and 19th century for those of Jewish descent. She’ll add a few tips for successful searching as well.
Crista Cowan has been employed by Ancestry.com since 2004; her involvement in family history, however, reaches all the way back to childhood. From being parked under a microfilm reader at the Family History Library in her baby carrier to her current career as a professional genealogist, Crista has spent thousands of hours discovering, documenting and telling family stories.
In her time at Ancestry she has been a European Content Acquisition Manager, the Digital Preservation Indexing Manager and the Community Alliance Manager for the Ancestry World Archives Project. For the past several years she has been the Corporate Genealogist, with responsibilities for speaking and teaching at genealogy conferences around the world and helping with family history research for public relations stories. Known online as The Barefoot Genealogist with a weekly internet show designed to help people discover their family history.
