Jewish Genealogy: Finding your Jewish Roots with Stephen Harris
March 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+0
Dr. Stephen Harris will present “Jewish Genealogy: Finding your Jewish Roots” in conjunction with the temporary exhibit Pioneers to Present: Jews of Richmond & Contra Costa County. This exhibit is the latest in the “Know Your Community” series of public programs. “The goal is to provide beginning genealogists with enough information to conduct their own research,” says Harris, who has been a professional genealogist since 1991, helping families, attorneys, and businesses with their genealogical research needs. The program will present the basic steps in genealogical research, describe how to proceed amidst a wealth of data sources (including online services, offline archives, DNA analysis) and explain how to evaluate and organize evidence.
Dr. Harris is past president of the California Genealogical Society, has lectured extensively on genealogical subjects, and is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. Learn more on his website www.GenResearch.net
