Starting with information that you know about yourself and your immediate family, the goal is to rediscover your ancestor’s history from the time your family came to the United States as well as trying to go back to the “old country.” Nolan will also discuss resources available to assist in trying to find information on family members that did not come to America and may have been lost during the Holocaust.
Nolan has made various presentations and conducted computer workshops at the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies conferences in Boston, New York City, Washington, D.C., Paris, Chicago and Philadelphia. He has had articles published in Avotaynu, Dorot, Stammbaum, Shemot and the FEEHS Journal.
This program is open to the public and Free of charge. Advance registration is strongly recommended. Please call the Temple Office at (516) 239-1140 or email office@tilny.org to register.
