"Researching Breslau's Jewish Community Through Data-Mining," Stephen Falk

Stephen Falk, president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of British Columbia, will discuss expanding records for the Jewish community in the former eastern Germany city of Breslau, now Wroclaw, Poland. His focus has been searching all available 18th and 19th century records and linking most of the Jewish families of Breslau from that time.

Stephen, who lives in Point Roberts, Washington on the U.S./Canadian border, has devoted 45 years to researching his family lines from Silesia, Posen and West and East Prussia.

All are welcome to join the Zoom meeting from 10 a.m. to noon on October 17:
