Stuck at a brick wall in your quest? Each of us finds ourself in this situation at some time in our research.
For those in the Greater Washington DC area, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington has scheduled a comprehensive "brick wall" question and answer session on Sunday, January 10, 2010.
The day starts with networking at 1pm, followed by a business meeting and the Q&A session at Congregation Beth El (Bethesda, Maryland).
The plan is to have several "area" desks available - each supported by an expert in a particular area of research - to answer your questions. The mavens (experts, Yiddish) will seek to cover as many areas of research as members want to ask about.
Email your questions in advance so experts will be ready to answer them at the session.
Fee: JGSGW members, free; others, $5. See the JGSGW site for more information and directions.
