Information About Her Presentations
Schelly will be doing two presentations and here are their titles and summaries.
Title: Sephardic Research and Resources
Summary: Sephardic genealogy has seen a proliferation of websites, books, and databases relevant to Jews exiled from Iberia in the 15th century. Topics covered include geography, traditions, history, immigration, challenges, languages, online and archival resources, and the newest resources. Learn how Hispanic research intersects with Jewish genealogy.
Title: Did Your Abuelita...?
Summary: Social and food traditions are the last to disappear in ethnic populations. Topics covered will demonstrate what traditions – life-cycle, food and more - are still observed in many Hispanic families of Sephardic ancestry – whether that heritage is known, has been lost in history, or is simply denied.
