If you did not attend the JGSO June 8 program. You missed a lot. We had two entertaining and information packed presentations by professional genealogist Jordan Auslander – one on Gazetteers for the Kingdom of Hungary and one on Researching New York City resources, remotely. And then there was the excellent catered brunch. (Many thanks to Marcia Freed for overseeing and coordinating the brunch and the many others who helped with the set up for the brunch).
Here are links for the two handouts provided by Jordan.
