Learn how to “Break down Brick Walls”

A team of experts, all past presidents of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland, will give advice on how to break through a brick wall while researching your family tree. Ken Bravo, Richard Spector and Helen Wolf will share research strategies and examples of how they have found missing ancestors. Helen Wolf will show how her research reunited the lost Shapiro branch to her husband’s Wolf family.

Questions for the panel may be submitted in advance by January 1 to Programming@ClevelandJGS.org. Please be specific about what you are seeking and what you have already tried. Give as much background information as possible, so that the panelists can suggest ways to move your research forward. There will also be an opportunity for questions from the floor.
