Workshop: Using the Pittsburgh Jewish Newspaper Project
Time & Location
About the Event
The Jewish Genealogy Society of Pittsburgh is launching a series of workshops to help genealogists learn how to use these valuable research tools.
In this first session, learn how to use the Pittsburgh Jewish Newspaper Project. The Pittsburgh Jewish Newspaper Project is a digitized collection of four English-language Jewish newspapers published in Pittsburgh between 1895 and 2010. It is an invaluable tool for local Jewish genealogical research, but many people struggle to navigate the website. This short interactive workshop will provide an introduction to the website. Attendees will learn how to find information on the website, including some tips that many seasoned users may not even know. The workshop will be presented an open format where attendees can ask questions and gain skills that will lead to future research successes.
