Jewish Genealogy Society of MD May 18 program

“Finding Documents in Eastern Europe


“Bringing Family Stories to Life through Video”

 The next meeting of the JGSMD will be held on Sunday, May 18, 2014, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., at HADASSAH (3723 Old Court Road, Suite 205) in Pikesville, MD. The program will be a double-header, featuring presentations by Hanna Berger and Lara Diamond.

Lara Diamond, our Co-President and Technology Chair, will talk about some strategies she has used to obtain documents from Ukraine—including the hiring of private researchers, crowdsourcing research for specific towns, and utilizing the resources of the Family History Library. These strategies should be applicable to much of Eastern Europe.

 Hanna Berger, the Program Chair of JGSMD and founder of Bat Ami Strul Productions, will also speak. Genealogy web sites (MyHeritage, Ancestry, FamilySearch, Treelines, etc) are great tools to use for organizing your scribbled notes, but to make those dry notes come alive, to see and hear and smell the world of your ancestors, and to tug at the heartstrings of family, friends, and even strangers, you’ll need something more. Join Hanna Berger in exploring how video can bring to life the long-gone world of your ancestors.

 The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.

The Jewish Museum of Maryland presents The Eighth Annual Herbert M. and Irma B. Risch Memorial Program on Immigration

The Risch Memorial Program is the Museum’s largest and most important annual event in our calendar year. Each year we focus on a different aspect of the topic of immigration. This year, as JMM looks at cultural ties between the Chinese and the Jewish Communities though its Project Mah Jongg exhibit, we have invited a very special expert on the Jews of East Asia to be our featured speaker. Rabbi Marvin Tokayer, former Rabbi of the Jewish Community of Japan and author of the Fugu Plan, will deliver the keynote presentation,From Poverty to Culture: The Refugee Community in Shanghai During World War II. 

You won’t want to miss this powerful evocation of how the 20,000 Jews of Shanghai struggled against impossible odds not only to survive, but thrive in this unexpected refuge. Rabbi Marvin Tokayer will bring to life this unique immigrant story.

Support for the Risch Memorial  program is provided by Frank and Helen Risch through the Risch Memorial Endowment Fund at The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.
