Please join us on Sunday, July 30, 2017, to hear Mindie Kaplan present “Organize and Share Your Genealogy: Methods from the Library of Congress.”

Our research can generate a huge mass of names, places, dates, stories, photographs, and even video and audio recordings. Using examples of genealogies housed in the Library of Congress, Mindie Kaplan will showcase different ideas for presenting your work and making that collection of information accessible to others.

Mindie Kaplan has been involved in Jewish genealogy for more than 20 years and has a family tree consisting of more than 3500 individuals. When printed, her Splaver Family Tree is 197 pages long, including photos, biographies, stories, and references. Her Entes Family Tree is 110 pages.
