We’re excited to announce that JewishGen and the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, are cohosting the first ever Mishpachah Festival on Sunday, May 21st, 2023, from 10am-5pm. Join us as we celebrate Genealogy, Heritage, & Immigration, and enjoy a wide range of activities and events for the entire family.
Notably for our community, a number of JewishGen Research and Project Directors will be staffing a JewishGen table in the resource room, and will be giving short “JewishGen Talks” on their respective geographical/topical areas throughout the day (for details, scroll down to the bottom of the web site). There will also be plenty of opportunities to connect with other members of the JewishGen community.
