| Genealogy Meeting on March 11th in Ra'anana

Elena Bazes    
Monday, 04 March 8:43 AM

Join us for the next meeting of the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) on March 11th. Prof. Daniel Wagner will speak on “Tracing Pre-1700 Jewish Ancestors Using Metrical and Rabbinical Records”.

In this lecture, Prof.  Wagner will describe a research line that started with a highly conjectural hypothesis but eventually led to a wealth of significant pre-1700 family history, including the discovery of an unanticipated Polish rabbinical line. By merging information from post-1808 metrical records, extrapolated pre-1808 metrical records, Yizkor book chronicles, rabbinical sources, a rare Record Book of a Jewish Community Council (Pinkas Kahal), and complemented by a stunning discovery during an incidental chat with a Chassid from Brooklyn, a formal family tree that includes a total of 12 generations from about 1685 to 2018 was reconstructed.

Daniel Wagner is a Professor at the Weizmann Institute. He has researched his Polish roots since 1995.The author of 30 genealogical papers, editor of a book about scientific tools in genealogy, Prof. Wagner was the Co-Chairman of the IAJGS Conference in Jerusalem.
