Finding Relatives in Russian Empire Records for Non-Russian Speakers

12/15/2019 to 12/15/2019

6125 Montrose Road, Rockville, MD 20852

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Washington (JGSGW) will host the program, Finding Relatives in Russian Empire Records for Non-Russian Speakers presented by Lara Diamond, at Bender Jewish Community Center (6125 Montrose Road, Rockville, Maryland) on Sunday, December 15, 2019. Activities begin at 1:00 PM including consultations with our genealogy “mavens” followed by the program beginning at 1:30 PM. More and more Russian Empire records are becoming accessible online, but few are indexed. But for those who don’t speak Russian, browsing through the records in old-style Russian handwriting can be daunting. This talk will focus on how to identify, within various types of Russian Empire records, records relating to a researcher’s family, in spite of not having any Russian language background. The talk will also cover various sources for online Russian Empire documents and discuss how to leverage these for one’s own research. https://jgsgw.org/eventListings.php?nm=34#er128
