UK: Manchester workshop, Feb. 7

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain’s Manchester regional group will hold a professional workshop on Sunday, February 7.

The event runs from 11am-4pm at the GMP Training College, Prestwich, North Manchester. Alien Registration Books will be on display with an advisor to answer questions.

The main speaker is attorney Richard Pearlman of London, whom I met when I spoke at the JGSGB’s conference in London a few years ago. The JGSGB was established in 1992, and Richard was a founding member.

He’ll be speaking about how to get going and how to make progress, and will answer questions.

The workshop includes help and one-on-one opportunities for family historians of all skill levels. Beginners will learn where and how to start; intermediates will learn how to make progress, and experienced researchers to get beyond brick walls. It will also be useful to researchers of mixed backgrounds who have just discovered a Jewish ancestor and don’t know how to learn more.

Planning ahead? The regional group’s next annual conference is set for Sunday, May 9, and will feature speakers Michael Tobias (of JewishGen) and David Lewis (Hull Jewish Archives and migrants who passed through Hull).
