Upcoming Events

The Other Side of Jewish Genealogy: Sephardic Research – Speaker Schelley Talalay Dardashti
Sunday, June 3, 2018 1:30-3:30 PM
Just a few years ago, researchers of Sephardic genealogy were out of luck. However, thanks to the internet, the Sephardic genealogy world has increased exponentially every year. Where once there was nothing, today we have many websites, new books, increased library holdings, conferences, accessible archival records from the comfort of our homes, and increasingly important DNA projects that focus on this field. Included in this presentation will be numerous archival documents, and many examples of online resources that simply did not exist in the recent past.
