Mercer County Jewish Genealogy Society at Beth El Synagogue November Meeting
November 12, 2018 , 12:30 am
On Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 7:30 pm, the Beth El Synagogue of East Windsor, Mercer County Genealogy Society presents Sandra Lanman as she explains how a little information led her to big discoveries. In late 1996, Sandy began searching for the biological family of her late mother, who had been given up for adoption in Germany in 1928. Just five months later, she found her grandmother Elsie’s immediate and extended family – many living right here in New Jersey. Today, Sandy will tell you about the twists and turns she’s encountered in identifying her biological grandfather, and the many other discoveries she’s made along the way, often using the techniques of an investigative journalist rather than a genealogist.
Beth El Synagogue is located at 50 Maple Stream Road, East Windsor, NJ, 08520; 609-443-4454; www.bethel.net.
