About The Event
Have you ever wondered how your immigrant ancestors adjusted to life in New York when they first immigrated to the US, and how they came to the Midwest? The Minnesota Jewish Genealogical Society is pleased to present as our speaker, J.D. Arden, reference and genealogy librarian at the Center for Jewish History (CJH) in New York. The talk will focus on how to research immigrants to New York during the periods 1860 - 1891 and 1892 - 1924 using New York-specific online resources, with an emphasis on resources available at the CJH Ackerman and Ziff Family Genealogy Institute.
Attendance is open to all, capacity permitting, but if you are not a MNJGS member we invite you to contribute $5 to support our efforts in continuing to provide you with topics of interest. A membership affords you access to past recorded talks.
