Eastern Suburbs Workshop – 17 November 2019

I thought my family were Polish Jews??
Their records say Poland but also Russia, Austria and Galicia!

Come and learn about the changing borders in Eastern Europe and how to find useful records for researching your family’s Jewish roots.

We’ll explore databases including

  • Jewish Records Indexing Poland (JRI-Pol);
  • the JewishGen databases for Poland, Lithuania, and Austria/Hungary;
  • Gesher Galicia;
  • the Polish State Archives and
  • Familysearch.

We will also learn about useful tools for narrowing the search when you don’t know the town of origin.

Date: Sunday 17 November 2019
Time: Doors open 2pm, talk begins 2.30pm followed by Q&A and use of resources
Location: Theatrette, 1st Floor Waverley Library, 32-48 Denison St,
Bondi Junction NSW 2022
