With the sponsorship of the Lucille Gudis Memorial Fund for Jewish Genealogy, the JGSNY is planning an online afternoon program dedicated to examining and researching our family photographs. Maureen Taylor, photo specialist, will present the Gudis Memorial Lecture, No Language Barrier: Immigrant Clues in Photographs, to be followed by a Photo Detective Roadshow, also underwritten by the Gudis Memorial Fund.
In her lecture, using numerous examples, Maureen will explain how to read the visual evidence found in family photographs taken in the United States and abroad. Dive into ways to solve your immigrant photo mysteries by looking at case studies, using online and offline sources.
