The Northeast Indiana Jewish Genealogy Society is proud to host Avraham Groll, Director of JewishGen, on Sunday, November 4 at 2 p.m. for two talks at the Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center.
The Director of JewishGen.org, Groll is committed to helping people connect with their Jewish roots and experiencing what it means
to be part of the Jewish people. Please join us for the following discussions:
- 2 p.m. – What is JewishGen and how it can help with researching family history, including techniques for using the website.
- 3:30 p.m. – Jewish Migration Patterns and “How Did Jews Get to Europe?” Exploring patterns of Jewish migration, this second talk will focus on the background of the Jewish community prior to our genealogical records, including the creation of the Ashkenazi and Sephardic communities.
Groll holds an MBA from Montclair State University, an MA in Judaic Studies from Touro College, and a BS in Business Administration from Ramapo college. He is a frequent lecturer on a variety of Jewish genealogical and historical topics.
Members of the NEIJGS will have an opportunity to meet with Groll at a special dinner that evening. For information about joining the society, contact Betsy Gephart or Irv Adler at NEIndianaJGS@gmail.com, or check out the Facebook page.
His appearance is made possible with funding from the Dr. Harry W. Salon Foundation, along with a grant from the Lande Genealogy Fund, acquired with the help of the Indiana Jewish Historical Society.
