Gary Deutsch - Former president and webmaster for the Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia, as well as a former genealogy columnist for the “Maccabiah Press” in Marietta, GA. With more than 20 years of genealogical research, he has lectured and taught classes on navigating the Ellis Island online database, effective genealogy web research and Heritage scrap-booking.

Gary Palgon - Genealogical researcher and author. Mr. Palgon began researching his family’s history in 1981, tracing over 6,000 relatives back to the 1600s on six continents. His research has taken him throughout the United States, Eastern Europe and the Middle-East, visiting the towns where his ancestors lived.  He has published seven books about his family history as well as others pertaining to genealogy. 

At Noon, one hour prior to the meeting, Dave Slater and Robert Weinberg will be available to accommodate members and guests wishing to utilize the genealogical resources in The Bremen’s library.
