Felix and Sue Warburg will present a slide show highlighting the history of Jewish life in Georgia and South Carolina. They will discuss Francis Salvador and the Sheftall, Nunez, Minis, and Keyserling families, all of whom made significant contributions to Southern Jewish history. Even though none of these is the family I'm researching, I'm still planning on attending, because I know I will gain insight into the Jewish community of the period I am interested in. I'm also hoping the Warburgs will discuss what community records still exist and where they can be accessed.
The presentation will be at 7:00 p.m. at the Jewish Community Library, 1835 Ellis Street, San Francisco. The talk is free and anyone interested is welcome to attend. For more information, visit the library's Web site. The San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society is cosponsoring the presentation.
