False trails are common in genealogy, and many of us have followed them as we delve into documents and family stories.
Sallyann Amdur Sack-Pikus, PhD will discuss this topic at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Washington, on Sunday, May 16.
The program begins at 1.30pm, at B’nai Israel, 6301 Montrose Road, Rockville, Maryland.
Attendees are invited to share similar “false trail” experiences – email them to the JGSGW – and they will be discussed at the meeting.
Sallyann was instrumental in founding the International Institute for Jewish Genealogy, Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Washington, International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, and Avotaynu. She has chaired or co-chaired six of the annual international Jewish genealogy conferences, authored or co-authored seven books for genealogists and has consulted on numerous projects.
