Jewish Genealogical Society Meeting
Oct 22 2017 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Jewish Genealogical Society Meeting

JGSG Panel Discussion

Todd Knowles works as a member of the International Patron Services team at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, and volunteers as president of the Utah Jewish Genealogical Society.

When he was introduced to family history at the age of 12, Todd filled out his first pedigree chart. One name on the chart caught his eye. It was Morris David Rosenbaum, and since then, he has been trying to find out everything that he can about his Jewish roots.

The journey to find these Polish Jews has led to the creation of the Knowles Collection (knowlescollection.blogspot.com), 6 databases that as of May 1, 2016, contain the genealogical records of over 1.4 million people.

At this October meeting we will watch a video of Todd’s presentation at the 2016 IAJGS Conference titled, “Getting the Most Out of FamilySearch for Jewish Research.”

Free for Members. Non-Members, participation in this event is included in the cost of general museum admission.

    Jews of Color in Early America with Author Laura Leibman

    The Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia presents this exclusive author talk with Professor Laura Leibman author of Once We Were Slaves: The Extraordinary Journey of a Multi-Racial Jewish Family. Professor Leibman will share the extraordinary story of a Jewish genealogist from a prominent American family with a Jewish American pedigree going back before the Revolutionary War. She was searching for her grandmother's maternal line, and expected to find wealthy Sephardic Jews. Instead, she found poor, enslaved ancestors whose life stories will upend many of the ideas that we have about ourselves.
