Jewish Genealogical Society Meeting

Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia Meeting Details

Do you have documents, photographs, or family heirlooms stashed away in shoe boxes in the attic, basement, or closet? Then there is no time like the present to organize and preserve those items for future generations to learn their family heritage. Join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia as our featured speaker, Jeremy Katz, Archives Director at the Breman Museum, conducts a workshop on preserving your family history. Participants are encouraged to bring items from the family collections they wish to be examined for preservation.

Participants are also encouraged to stay after the program for the opening of the Curating Your Family Story exhibition featuring art projects completed by Shearith Israel students on their family heritage.

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

    Bearing Witness: Robert Ratonyi (Hungary)

    Robert remembers a childhood scarred by fear, upheaval, hunger and loss. He was six years old when forced to wear a yellow star and face the terrors of war and ghetto life without his parents, both of whom were deported to concentration camps. He grew up under communist dictatorship and escaped Hungary following the bloody uprising of 1956. A graduate of MIT and Drexel University, Robert went on to a successful business career.
