Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 8 PM EST: “Getting Started with Jewish Genealogy” will be hosted as a webinar by the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society. Whether you have a Jewish ancestor or are looking to assist others, this session will introduce you to the history of the Jewish people, immigration to the United States, and aspects of their lives. Using this information we can get to know our Jewish ancestors in depth and find records that can take us back to the homeland.
