"Who Do You Think They Were?"

You know who you are -- but do you know who THEY were? By "they" we mean the folks who came before you -- your parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and of course all of their siblings also.  On Sunday, August 28, the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society meeting will be a research workshop.  Experienced SFBAJGS researchers will work with attendees and try to make sure that everyone leaves with at least one answer or lead to pursue.  Along the way we will help you figure out how to research and answer the "who, what, where, when, why, and how" of your family.

Doors will open at the Oakland Regional Family History Center (4766 Lincoln Avenue, Oakland, CA 94602) at 12:30 p.m.  The workshop will run from 1:00-4:00 p.m.  Bring copies of documents and photos, not originals.  The meeting is free and everyone interested is welcome to attend.  Light kosher refreshments will be served.  For more information visit http://www.sfbajgs.org/.

  1. Our workshop was pretty successful on Sunday. We had fifteen attendees and three facilitators. Everyone who presented a research problem was given several leads to pursue, and most of the attendees who stayed and worked on the computers at the Family History Center were able to find documents relating to their research questions. We will probably hold another session like this next year.
