In this workshop Joel Alpert will cover the basics of where to research information for your Jewish genealogy and how to store it for future generations. The evening will be interactive, so bring your family names and towns from which they came in Europe. Feel free to bring your own computer, but it is not required. We will explore how to use JewishGen.org.
