Covered will be Gesher Galicia’s databases, including The All Galicia Database, the Cadastral Map Room and Galician Archival Records Project inventories, along with resources like GenTeam, Mapire and Genealogy Indexer. Techniques for successful database searching, expanding Google’s reach, foreign language searches, document analysis and translation options will be covered. Also learn how to access Austrian and Polish online libraries, cemetery databases and international historical newspaper websites. The use of maps in genealogical research will also be explored. (A working knowledge of how to use a computer and basic computer commands is essential.)

    Summer Speaker Series: The First Jews in Georgia

    Ann Woolner, journalist and author, traces Georgia’s first Jews from the torture chambers of the Portuguese Inquisition through escape to London and then onto a forbidden voyage to Savannah. Unexpected and unwanted, 41 Jews landed in the infant colony 1733 in the midst of a deadly epidemic there — seemingly quelled by one of their own, a Portuguese-born doctor. His curative treatments brought respect and equal treatment for Jewish settlers. When the Revolution came, these families fought as patriots, ran supplies and helped finance the war.

In this workshop, children, parents and siblings can enjoy honoring the sea turtle by creating a sea turtle sculpture using air dry clay, to create texture and design that can be incorporated into a 3D sea turtle seascape. The clay can be made at home with a simple recipe using flour, salt and water and the recipe will be part of the supply list included with registration for the workshop

    Studio Earth: Mother Earth Figurines

    Workshop supplies can be recycled materials and found objects, large fabric scraps, ribbon, string, and newspaper to create a Mother Earthfigurine. No sewing is required. Start with rolled up newspaper to be the support for the figure. Then add layers of materials, attaching them with string or yarn. Arms are made using more fabric and string. How Mother Earth’s clothing evolves depends on what fabrics and materials are selected. Add a scarf, a hat and a piece of found jewelry as a final embellishment. The completed Mother Earth can be a 3-D folk art work of art to enjoy at home, as a reminder to appreciate and care for our world.
