It is the Story of the Jewish People”

Pacific Time (US & Canada)
The ZOOM meeting was RECORDED <click ! and use passcode: 8L7W4+WQ
In tracing her roots, Laura Gold accessed her grandmother’s archive of documents and family photographs. She interviewed extended family members and utilized professional researchers in Belarus to learn as much as possible about her family story. Further information was gathered through travel to ancestral homes. Her research places her family in the context of Jewish life in the Russian Empire and in the United States. Each family has a story and that story is the story of the Jewish people. Genealogy reveals the story.
Laura Gold is Vice President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles. She has engaged in genealogical research since about 1995 when she received her mother’s family trees from a cousin. A former debater at California State University Northridge and qualifier for the National Debate Tournament, she is now retired from the Office of the Attorney General where she worked as a trial lawyer defending the State of California. She is a skilled public speaker and has made genealogy presentations to genealogical societies, synagogues and Jewish women’s organizations, coordinated genealogy classes, and led tours of Jewish Los Angeles.
There will be no physical location so the JGSLA Traveling Library and Mentors Corner will NOT be available for this meeting.
