Monthly Meeting of Jewish Genealogy Society of Tampa Bay to Be Held 18 May 2022

The information just received from JGSTB:

"The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay is offering a look at The New York Public Library’s Jewish genealogical resources during its virtual meeting at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18. The library holds one of the largest and most publicly accessible Judaica and general research collections in the world. Amanda Seigel, a librarian for instruction and outreach in the Dorot Jewish Division of the library, will demonstrate how to find and use sources such as yizkor books, registers, family histories, historical newspapers and other biographical and genealogical materials in the collection. She will give participants the tools to begin or continue your genealogy research and share insider tips on how best to utilize the NYPL's collection, its staff expertise, and other free resources, from afar.

"For further information about this program and how to attend, email Chris Burklund at . An RSVP is required for security purposes to receive sign-in instructions.
