Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island Offers Video about Hebrew Naming and How to Read Hebrew Headstones

The following announcement was written by the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island:

JGSLI LogoThe Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island (JGSLI), winner of the IAJGS 2015 Outstanding Publication Award for its You Tube Channel, is pleased to announce its latest video, “How to Read a Hebrew Headstone.”

Hebrew headstones provide arguably Jewish genealogy’s most important advantage, patronymic names. This video will help you find this valuable information, whether you can read Hebrew or not. With all the difficulties we have with Jewish genealogical research; name changes, country and town name changes, missing or destroyed records, using patronymics is an advantage we should all be using.

You can access all 16 of our short instructional videos directly from our You Tube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUV8xttIn93AwJX2_I0AIAg/feed or from our website http://jgsli.org. If you have any comments or recommendations for other topics, please let us know at past_pres@jgsli.org.
