Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut April Event

Please join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut on Sunday, April 15 at 1:30 PM at Temple Sinai, 41 West Hartford Rd, Newington, as Marian Burk Wood presents Planning a Future for Your Family’s Past: Organize Your Genealogy and Share With Future Generations.

Did you inherit a genealogical mess? Old photos, documents, and heirlooms are vital to understanding your family’s past—and they belong to your family’s future. Get your genealogy ready for the next generation by following the four-step PASS process: (1) prepare by organizing and analyzing your materials, (2) allocate ownership of specific items, (3) set up a “genealogical will,” and (4) share your family history with heirs. Learn how you can put your genealogy materials in order, inventory and index your collection to discover new clues, strengthen cousin connections with photo giveaways, donate artifacts to appropriate institutions, identify heirs for your genealogy collection, draft written instructions for safeguarding your materials, and keep family history alive for future generations by starting to share now.

Program is free and open to the public.
