The Nooks and Crannies of Local Jewish Genealogical Research

Some record sets—like census forms, city directories, and newspapers—are broadly useful for any genealogical research. Others are specific to particular groups. This talk will look at Western Pennsylvania records that emerge from three broad categories of Jewish communal activities: simchas (joyous occasions), parnasa (earning a living), and zichron (memorialization). Understanding the patterns of Jewish communal life in this region can help you find information about your Jewish ancestors in unexpected places.

Eric Lidji is the director of the Rauh Jewish Archives at the Heinz History Center, which is the primary repository of Jewish archival materials in Western Pennsylvania.
