2:00pm: JewishGen Presentation: What Jewish Genealogists Need to Know about Jewish Given Names

All genealogy research starts with names. Though that statement seems simple enough, in the world of our ancestors, names and the issues governing them, could be quite complex. Among other topics, this talk will cover how Jews got their names, what names were chosen, amuletic names, diminutives and spelling, and what happened to names after emigration from Eastern and Central Europe. A case study will demonstrate how understanding all of the above demolished a long-standing brick wall and carried the Amdur family tree back to the early 1700s.
