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 a Photo Detective Roadshow for JGSNY members, preceded by the Gudis Memorial Lecture, No Language Barrier: Immigrant Clues in Photographs, also underwritten by the Gudis Memorial Fund.
JGSNY members planning to attend the Roadshow will have the opportunity to submit photos in advance with their specific questions. Maureen will respond to a selection from among those for analysis and discussion. We will request a modest donation from those whose photos are discussed. Information on submitting a photo, one per member, will be provided.
