IGRA celebrates International Jewish Genealogy Month! The first lecture in our series was on the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) by Nolan Altman. This webinar explores the importance of patronymics and how headstones are one of the best sources for this information. You’ll have a chance to get to understand the JOWBR site, how it works, what it includes and go through a sample search.  This is geared to those with minimal experience but all will come away with new insights.
