The following notice came from the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston. Ted Knowles will be speaking at Congregation Beth El-Arareth at 561 Ward Street in Newton on Sunday, September 25th from 1:30 to 4:30. I’ve heard from several people who have heard him before that he is excellent. [Please note that this is not being held at Temple Emanuel. The meeting place has changed for this talk.] For more information, provided by the JGSGB, read below.
W. Todd Knowles is a professional genealogist on the staff of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. After being introduced to family history at the age of 12, he soon discovered his Jewish roots. His journey to learn more about his Polish-Jewish great- great-grandfather led to the creation of the Knowles Collection (knowlescollection.blogspot.com). Knowles has spoken throughout the world and his articles have been widely published. He currently serves as President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Utah.
Admission is free for members, $5 for non-members. Refreshments will be served. For more information check http://jgsgb.org/event/getting-the-most-out-of-familysearch-org.
