March 24 - Pikesville, MD

Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland

Speaker: Peter Wambach
Title: “From Whence We Came”
Date and Time: Sunday, March 24, 2019, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd, Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, March 24, 2019, to hear Peter Wambach present “From Whence We Came.”

This genealogy search began with a challenge from Peter Wambach’s father to his children to research his family history and ancestry. His father was an only child whose father died when he was only 4 years old, so he knew very little about his father. He wanted to “touch the hand of a living, breathing relative.” This talk describes this search, which extended to three continents, and its eventual outcome.

Peter Wambach was born in Harrisburg, PA, on May 12, 1946, and was the sixth of the fourteen children of Peter and Margherita (Zarbo) Wambach. Educated in the parochial school system in central Pennsylvania, he graduated from Penn State University with a BS degree in 1970. He worked in the open hearth of Bethlehem Steel Corporation, in real estate sales, as a lobbyist, and as an executive in a construction firm. He retired in 2006 after a 36-year career with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, having served as an employee in the House of Representatives, Revenue, Property and Supplies, and General Services departments. In addition, he served 12 years as a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives from 1980 to 1992. He is an 11-year member of the Board of Trustees of Harrisburg Area Community College. He resides in Harrisburg with his wife, Urszula. He is the father of two children and two step-children and has three grandchildren.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied to JGSMD membership fee) after their first meeting. Please check our web site at for late updates and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.
