Sherlock Cohn: It’s Elementary

Ava "Sherlock" Cohn

A reminder about JGSCO event on Sunday, May 15 at Congregation Har Hashem (North Building), 3950 Baseline Road, Boulder from 10:00 am to noon.  There is no fee for this event and it is open to all!

All Jewish genealogists, at heart, are detectives. By the very nature of Jewish genealogy, analyzing Jewish family photographs presents unique challenges unlike those of any other ethnic groups.

Using all available clues, Sherlock Cohn, The Photo Genealogist will discuss how this evidence can help us overcome our brick walls by dating our family photographs and learning the stories our mishpacha (family) purposely left for us. Ava will illustrate this by presenting two of her challenging cases.

For more about Ava Cohn aka Sherlock Cohn, please read the accompanying article. See you Sunday!

Presented by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado.
