Using Religious Records in Your Family History: Catholic and Jewish Records of New England

    Improve listing Presented by

In partnership with the New England Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (NEAPG)
Saturday, March 23 9:00 – 12:00, with optional research time until 5:00 PM
Cost: $20

The local church or synagogue was a central part of our ancestors’ lives, thus religious records can be an invaluable resource for genealogists. They can shed light on an ancestors’ faith, round out your understanding of their life story, and be used as vital record substitutes. Join experts from New England Historic Genealogical Society and the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston to explore Roman Catholic and Jewish records in New England. Attendees can stay after the program to use the NEHGS Library resources.

NOTE: If you are a current member of the New England Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (NEAPG), please RSVP to President@neapg.org.
