Genealogy is about personal memory and connecting to the people who have played a role in bringing you to this place in your life. It can enlarge your sense of self and community in profound and lasting ways and is a legacy to pass along to your family. In this how-to workshop, learn to start researching your family's history from the comfort of your home computer. This program is a collaboration of JCC Greater Boston, Jewish Family & Children's Service and the Vilna Shul/Boston's Center for Jewish Culture.

Pre-registration required to receive private zoom link.
