The Jews Who Left Spain and Their Genealogy, Daniel Horowitz
Sunday, 7 July 2024, 10:30 a.m. Pacific Time, Zoom, free

The history of Jews who left Spain is complex, partly because they moved and lived in a wide range of geographical locations throughout history. In this lecture, Daniel will explore the origins of the Sephardic Jewish communities and their genealogy.

Dedicated to genealogy since 1986, Daniel was the teacher and the study guide editor of the family history project "Searching for My Roots" in Venezuela for 15 years. He is a past board member of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, is involved in several crowdsourced digitization and transcription projects, and holds a board-level position at the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA). Since 2006 Daniel has been working at MyHeritage liaising with genealogy societies, bloggers, and media, as well as lecturing and attending conferences around the world. We are pleased to welcome Daniel, but it should be noted that JGSO is not endorsing MyHeritage over any other product or service.
