Seattle: Success & Thorny Problems, Sept. 8

A workshop on success stories and thorny problems is set for the Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State's next meeting at 7pm, Monday, September 8.

JGSWS members Deb Freedman, Susana Leniski and Joseph Voss will share success stories and try to help attendees with thorny genealogy problems.

- Use a rich new source on Ancestry.com, perfect for knocking down that last brick wall. Be astounded by Tacoma researcher Deb Freedman's discoveries.

- Learn how Susana Leniski used a suite of genealogy tools (FOIA, One-Step Webpages by Steve Morse, Salt Lake City archives) to discover the hidden secrets of her husband's Polish ancestry.

- Discover many sources of German vital records data and hear how Joseph Voss has helped people find new relatives using these resources.

The JGSWS library will be available before and after the program. Bring your laptops (WiFI available). Refreshments will be served.

The meeting is at the Stroum JCC on Mercer Island. JGSWS members, free; others $5.
