Filling in the In-Between of the Jewish BMD

A person's life is lived 24 hours a day, and includes much more than BMD. A person is involved in all facets of everyday life and we just need to think where to look for the sources that will tell these stories, and in what archive they can be found. The sources can deal with the socio-economic situation, immigration, socialism, the community, politics, education, occupation, youth movements and  others. The aim of the lecture is to show examples of various sources and in what archives or types of archives they were found. This will include the internet and social media. The next step will be for the audience to incorporate the ideas presented into their own family research. Most of the examples will be from the Israel Genealogy Research Association's [IGRA] All Israel Database (AID) collection.
This class will be broadcast live from MyHeritage headquarters in Or Yehuda, Israel as part of the MyHeritage One-Day Genealogy Seminar.
