The ZichronNote February 2016 Issue Has Been Published

The most recent issue of ZichronNote, the quarterly journal of the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society (and the publication for which I recently won an editing award) was e-mailed and mailed out to SFBAJGS members before the month of February ended (thank heavens for that leap day this year!).  Deborah Cohn's lead article focused on the detailed personal information you can find in newspapers, one of my favorite resources.  Susan Steeble discussed how she had to use two different Web sites to find online naturalization forms from the State Supreme Court of Kings County (Brooklyn), New York.  Judy Vasos and her husband took a trip to Eschau, Germany to visit the home of his ancestor.  And Judy Russell, the Legal Genealogist, reviewed Israel Pickholtz's recently published book on endogamy and DNA research.

Do these articles sound interesting to you?  Well, to receive ZichronNote when it is published, all you need to do is join the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society!  If you join at our very affordable annual membership rate, you not only will have the journal when it's hot off the press, you will be helping fund the research projects that the society supports and supporting a pastime that you enjoy.

There is another way to get a copy of ZichronNote:  You could contribute an article!  I could be promoting your fine prose here!  If you have had a breakthrough in your family history research, solved a family mystery through painstaking work, discovered an innovative way to use resource materials, or contacted a "tenuously, absurdly distant" cousin to learn more about your family, we would love to read about it.  If you are interested in writing for ZichronNote, send me a message, and we can discuss!
