“Using the Wilmette LDS Family History Center to Find Unusual Resources”
 
Judith Frazin, former president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois, will speak at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 28, about “Using the Wilmette LDS Family History Center to Find Unusual Resources” at the JGSI meeting in Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook.
 
Her presentation will focus on unusual Chicago, Cook County and Illinois resources, Internet links and international resources available through familysearch.org and the Wilmette Family History Center.  The emphasis will be on how to identify these resources and how to use them to find out information about your family.
 
A genealogist for 43 years, Judith Frazin has done extensive research on all the branches of her family.  She has written a book about two of her family branches that has been distributed to family members, and she served as president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois for 10 years.  She is also the author of three editions of A Translation Guide to 19th-Century Polish-Language Civil Registration Documents (including Birth, Marriage and Death Records).
 
In 2010, the International Association of Jewish Genealogists granted Frazin its award for Outstanding Contribution to Jewish Genealogy via the Internet, Print or Electronic Product. The Polish Genealogical Society of America also recognized her contribution to the field of genealogy by selecting her to receive its Wiglia award in 2000.
 
The JGSI meeting facilities at Temple Beth-El will open at 12:30 p.m. to accommodate members who want to use or borrow genealogy library materials, get help with genealogy websites, or ask genealogical questions before the main program begins at 2 p.m. For more information phone 312-666-0100.
