Ohio Genealogical Society recently sent out contracts to the speakers chosen for its 2019 conference, "Building a Heritage", scheduled for May 1–4 in Mason, Ohio at the Great Wolf Lodge. And I was the happy recipient of one of those contracts! It will be a relatively Jewish conference for me, as the talks they selected are "Jewish Genealogy: How Is This Research Different from All Other Research?" and "Online Resources for Jewish Genealogy."
I'm already looking forward to the conference. Not only will I enjoy giving the presentations and learning from other speakers, I'm sure I'll get to visit some extended family members who live in the area. Plus Mason isn't that far from Cincinnati, and a con man I am researching was from near there. The last time I was in Cincinnati, I was able to find a lot of information about him, but I left some stones unturned at the time.
So watch out, Ohio! I'll be seeing you next year!
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
