Jewish Genners:

 

Next Summer, from July 19-24, 2020, the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP) will for the first time be offering Introduction to Jewish Genealogy (see attached flyer). This course, team-taught by Emily Garber, Janette Silverman, Lara Diamond and Marian L. Smith, will concentrate on Eastern European Ashkenazi Jewish research in the Old World and the United States in 21 lessons.

 

We will provide additional information at a later date, but for now we want to make sure that those who are thinking of attending are aware of a scholarship opportunity: the Donn Devine Scholarship. GRIP will sponsor a full scholarship for a first time GRIP attendee. It will include full tuition and on-campus housing in a shared room (total value $825). The application deadline is January 1, 2020. For more information see: https://www.gripitt.org/grip-announces-the-donn-devine-scholarship/ .
