Jewish Gravestones and the Internet: A Researcher’s Guide to New York City

Tuesday, January 24 at 02:00pm EST
In-person and Online
Presented By Yonah Paley
Sponsored by the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society

More than a half-dozen New York cemeteries have official websites with wonderful search tools. They can be used in conjunction with sites like FindAGrave and FamilySearch to uncover incredible family details, and even save you time and find the name of that Shtetl.

In this program, we will go through some of the cemeteries and outline practical examples of online research strategies.

This event is free and open to the public. You can attend online or in-person.
