SZIA (HI) HUNGARY! Discovering Your Hungarian Ancestors
The Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut invites you to an interactive afternoon at Temple Sinai, 41 West Hartford Road, Newington, CT 06111. Please join us at our free webinar, which is open to anyone interested in Jewish genealogy research. ***
We are pleased to have our webinar presenter, Judi Gyory Missel share her knowledge and experiences via webinar from her home in Arizona.
Researching Hungarian relatives offers wonderful records with language and landscape challenges. Even if your ancestor(s) came from a town now in Slovakia, there is a good chance the records are in Hungarian archives!
This session will provide information about what Hungarian records look like, and where to find Hungarian Jewish records in a variety of locations and years.
Judi will also share some additional information about the area formerly part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and migration patterns.
Judi Gyori Missel has been fascinated by genealogy for over 30 years. She continues to make new discoveries about her family using DNA and trips to ancestral locales.
Being the first of her family born in America, and the child of Holocaust survivors, history and family have always been important. Judi has researched and published biographies for a range of Jewish and non-Jewish clients from Mayflower families to Native Americans. She has spoken about her visit to the International Tracing Service Archives in Germany, and has often presented about starting research on one's own family.
The Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut houses its library at Temple Sinai. JGSCT members may borrow items other than reference books and materials.
