Nashville Jewish Genealogical Society

The next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Nashville will be held on Sunday, February 19th 2023 beginning at 2:00 PM CT. Our featured speaker will be Ellen Kowitt, Director of JewishGen’s USA Research Division and National Vice Chair of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution Jewish Task Force. She will be speaking on documenting Jewish communities in the United States, not only using records from Jewish cemeteries and synagogue memorial plaques, but also congregational records, mohel registers, Jewish hospital and funeral home records, Jewish clubs and organizational materials, and more to be uncovered. This lecture showcases search techniques and websites where these Jewish genealogical gems may be found in archives, newspapers, rare books, or elsewhere. Featuring examples from the American Jewish Historical Society, the American Jewish Archives, regional Jewish historical society archives such as The Bremen Museum and Denver University's Beck Archive, state archives, FamilySearch, WorldCat, and more.

This meeting will be hybrid, accessible in-person at the Library of the Gordon Jewish Community Center, as well as on-line. RSVP to Scott Newman (nashvillejgs@gmail.com) for attendance (and/or zoom link) and any questions you may have.
