Tracing Your Jewish Ancestry Workshop

For Family and Social Historians

with Tutor - Leigh Dworkin

You never know when you might discover a Jewish ancestor in your family tree, if you are not Jewish. If you are, or have discovered that a parent or grandparent is, you may already have discovered the fascinating world of Jewish genealogy. It can be harder than regular genealogy, and the brick walls thicker, introducing you to different types of records in different languages from different countries. You may even decide to get on a plane to visit the lands of your ancestors!

In this workshop, Leigh Dworkin, Chairman of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain – as well as being Windsor Branch chairman of Berkshire Family History Society – will show you how to trace Jewish ancestors, detail the best resources online and in archives, explain how DNA research might help, and attempt to answer questions that you might have from your own family research, with pointers to the next best steps.

11am - 1pm

Ticket price includes tea/coffee and biscuits. Places limited, pre-booking required.

Book online or face to face at The Centre for Heritage and Family History during opening hours.
