    Explore Your Roots: Jewish Genealogy Workshop

    Explore your Roots with AJU's Jewish Genealogy 4-session Workshop! Have you ever wondered where your ancestors lived? What kind of work they did? When they came to the U.S.? How many siblings were in the family? This workshop will help you to find the answers. It will also get you started on the process of creating a family tree. It is more than a class.....it is an adventure: an adventure into your family history. We will explore what types of records exist, what they can tell you about your family members, and where these records can be found. We will be discussing census records, passenger manifests, and naturalization documents, as well as birth, marriage, death and adoption records. Come join us for this exciting adventure and get started creating a family tree for yourself, your children and your grandchildren.
