The Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut presents Nolan Altman, former Vice President for Data Acquisition at Jewishgen, www.jewishgen.org, and current President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Long Island, who will explain the many valuable databases hosted at Jewishgen, online affiliate of The Museum of Jewish Heritage. Altman worked with volunteers from around the world to build an extensive catalog of data for use by genealogists worldwide, including Holocaust data, vital records from the Russian Empire, and Jewishgen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR). Any person with an interest in Jewish genealogy will benefit from knowledge of these extensive records and how to use them to advance their personal research.
Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut Board Members have contributed over 7000 gravestone photos to JOWBR.
The meeting will be held on Sunday, April 21, 2013 from 1:30 to 3:30 pm at Godfrey Memorial Library, 134 Newfield Street
