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.
