The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County (JGSCV) will have a program, co–sponsored with Temple Adat Elohim on Sunday, January 6, 2019 at Temple Adat Elohim 2420 E. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, 91362
1:30-3:30 p.m.

You Can’t Find the Records–Now What?

What do you do when the records you need don’t exist or can’t be found? All too often, disasters (man-made and natural) and the passing of time may destroy the records we need to trace our families – or maybe the records we need never existed or are restricted by privacy laws. We will learn how to explore alternate records to build our family histories in the absence of “traditional” records.

Speaker: Marion Werle began family history research 23 years ago, researching family from Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus, who settled in the US, Canada, UK and Israel. She has been on the boards of JGSCV and JGSLA, and is a past president of the Latvia SIG. A retired IT professional with master’s degrees in both European History and Library Science from UCLA, she wrote The Skuders from Skud, about one of her Litvak branches, to share with family members. She recently completed the Boston University Genealogical Research Certificate, and has an ongoing interest in applying general genealogical methodology standards to Jewish research.
