Monday Evening -- Genealogy Mtg.
Jewish Genealogical Society
Back on our Monday night schedule:
Finding Your Family in 18th Century Eastern European Records
Monday, April 17, 7 p.m.
Albert Einstein Residence Center
Eighty percent of those alive today have ancestors who lived in the Polish- Lithuanian Commonwealth. David and Sonia Hoffman will be up from Los Angeles to talk about their work translating and analyzing thousands of pages of census-tax records from the late 18th century, for areas which are now in Lithuania, Belarus and parts of Poland. During this time Jews enjoyed a large degree of self-government and economic security. Learn what's in these records and how you might learn more about specific communities and families, even though there were not yet surnames.
Dr. David B. Hoffman is president of the Jewish Family History Foundation and co-founded and is the past president of the Litvak SIG. Sonia Hoffman is president of the of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles and coordinates the Grand Duchy Project of the Jewish Family History Foundation. The two have published numerous articles in genealogy publications and spoken at many conferences.
See you Monday evening!
