NEIJGS is proud to partner with the Indiana Jewish Historical Society for “Jewish Cemeteries – Indiana and Beyond,” a virtual program on Sunday, November 14th at 2:00 p.m. Guest speakers will be Jeannie R. Regan-Dinius, from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, and JewishGen’s Nolan Altman.
At 2:00, Jeannie Regan-Dinius will begin with a discussion of the state of cemeteries in Indiana, the presumed meanings of markings, how pop culture affects stones, and what you need to look at when you walk through a cemetery. Nolan Altman will speak at 3:30 about “Patronymic Naming and Cemetery Records - Their Importance in Jewish Genealogy.” By using an actual case study Mr. Altman will show participants online resources to help find headstone information worldwide.
