Gerald Naditch

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Gerald Naditch will address the Jewish Genealogical Society of Palm Beach County Inc. at the November 10 membership meeting. He will discuss “Internet Goldmines for Genealogists.” Registration and the popular Brick Wall Session begin at 12:30 pm with the business meeting and program following. The meeting takes place at the South County Civic Center, 16700 Jog Road, Delray Beach, FL.

Naditch’s presentation will review those networking sites that are specifically directed to researchers of genealogy—blogs, e-zines, digests, forums, newsletters, and more. Some of these "goldmines" focus on helpful articles such as "How to Publish the Results of Your Genealogical Research" or "How to Make Proper Citations in Your Genealogy Program." Others are in the form of a blog, which might be described as a stream of consciousness from a knowledgeable genealogist, often with comments from the general public. Many are daily digest where researchers can exchange information, and websites such as "Cyndi's List," which is a massive categorized and cross-referenced index to genealogical resources on the internet.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Naditch, a knowledgeable computer expert, is Webmaster of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Palm Beach County Inc, and Vice-President of the Boca Raton Computer Society. He lectures frequently at local organizations on topics of genealogical and computer interest.
