The Northeast Indiana Jewish Genealogy Society will present genealogist Mark Halpern on Sunday, February 14 via Zoom. He will present two virtual programs, both free and open to the public.
“The Basics of Jewish Research in Poland” will begin at 2 p.m. He’ll then present “A Deeper Dive into Galician Records” at 3:30 p.m.
Halpern works with JRI-Poland, JewishGen, and the International Association of Jewish Genealogy Societies. He serves on the Board and Executive Group of JRI-Poland, is the founder of Bialystok Area Jewish Genealogy Group, and is on the Advisory Board of Gesher Galicia. Mark was honored in 2018 with the IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award.
Galicia, a province of Austria-Hungary that is now split between Poland and western Ukraine, is the place of origin for many American Jewish families. We hope you will plan to join us for these informative programs! Registration information will be posted on the society’s website.
