Local Programs and Mentoring for Tracing Jewish Family History Worldwide
 
Our next program takes place on Sunday, January 27, 2019
 
International Holocaust Remembrance Day with Risa Daitzman Heywood, President, JGSCO
9:30 am to 12:00 pm
Denver Academy of Torah (DAT), 6825 E Alameda Ave, Denver
International Holocaust Remembrance Day: Honoring Victims and Remembering Survivors
 
On this International Holocaust Remembrance Day, learn how to find information about Holocaust victims and survivors.  The search can be challenging because there isn’t one clearinghouse for Holocaust records - the records are scattered among many repositories.  Because the experience of Holocaust victims was not the same in every European country, it’s helpful to know what happened in the place you are researching so that you can focus your search on the correct sites and records.  Examples of research from Germany, Hungary and Belarus will be shown.  The handout will include updated links to the most current Holocaust research sites
 
This program is free for members and $10 for nonmembers. Nonmembers can buy a  ticket using a credit card at https://squareup.com/store/jewish-genealogical-society-of-colorado (preferred), send a check to JGSCO, or pay at the door.
