Two Genealogy Events this Month

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado (JGSCO) is offering two programs for the month of October.

The first is open to all at no charge, on Sunday, October 16 at Har HaShem in Boulder, from 10:00 am to noon: “It’s More Fun to Seek Than to File” with Pat Roberts. If you need help or advice with organizing your genealogical research, then this is the talk for you! Topics covered include organizing your masses of papers and documents and putting into place a filing system and organizational plan that will grow as your research grows.

Pat Roberts has been doing family history research since 1973 and has held several senior positions within a variety of Colorado Genealogical Societies. She is currently a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and of the National Genealogical Speakers Guild. She also teaches a beginning genealogy class at Front Range Community College,

Our second event for October will be held on October 30 in Denver at the Hebrew Education Alliance (HEA) on 3600 S. Ivanhoe, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

The session will be conducted by Ellen Kowitt, President of the JGSCO and is the first of the seven session Jewish Family Tree Initiative mentoring and workshop series. Each session includes an instructional lecture and a hands-on workshop to assist with the creation of family trees and historical research utilizing genealogical resources and techniques. Mentoring assistance outside of class will be available. The sessions are open to everyone. There is a $30 one-time fee for non-members for a book and materials which includes one year of membership in the Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado. Attendance is not required at all seven sessions to participate; jump in any time to get started!

So whether you’ve already begun your genealogical research or are thinking about starting, please consider joining us for one or both of the above!! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by emailing Barry Halpern.
