Phoenix Jewish Genealogy Group 
2018-19 Meeting Schedule


Next Meeting : Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 6:30 P.M. at
Cutler-Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center (Arizona Jewish Historical Society)
122 E. Culver Street, Phoenix, AZ

Dr. Janette Silverman, Ancestry ProGenealogists, will speak to us on "Challenges of Jewish Genealogy: Names, Dates and Places."

Your Eastern European Jewish ancestors probably did not arrive in the U.S. with the name Smith or Roberts, but how do you know what their names were? They told you they came from a place that doesn't show up on any map, and their age is different in every record you look at! Why were they so mysterious and how can the information be clarified so we can get to the bottom of it? During this talk, Silverman will explore several different examples of confusion resulting from these challenges and provide some strategies to resolve conflicting information and find out what our ancestor's names were, where they came from and when they were born.
