Presenter at 7:30 p.m.; Jewish Genealogical Research for the Non-Jewish Researcher By Ellen Kowitt

For Jews of all backgrounds - and for those whom aren't Jewish - genealogical clues can be found in naming patterns, gravestones, calendar, and lifecycle events. Then, she'll point you in the right direction to find Jewish records online and offline including rabbinical dynasties, the Holocaust era, Jewish periodicals, and DNA testing. Ellen Kowitt is a past president of both the Jewish Genealogy Society of Colorado and the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington, DC.
