Jewish cemeteries and burial records *
- Ever wondered about the symbolism or Hebrew writing on your ancestor’s headstone?
- In small cemeteries, why do some graves appear to be located apart from the rest?
- Do you know where to look for your great-grandparents’ burials?
This talk by Robyn Dryen will help you navigate the customs and practice of Jewish burials, and identify likely sources of burial records for your ancestors.
The talk will begin at 2.30 and will be approximately 1 hour.
The talk will be followed by time for questions and queries from about 3.30pm
Location: Theatrette, Waverley Library.
