About this webinar

Strategies and resources to document the earliest Jews in America 1654-1880. Learn how to navigate early American secular records and Jewish institutional materials to create a successful research plan. Land, military, languages used, and historical collections will be featured. A timeline will help identify when to look for Jewish synagogue, burial, or other Jewish community documentation, and when only government-generated records will fill the gap.
