The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County [JGSCV] will hold a general meeting, co–sponsored with Temple Adat Elohim, on Monday, November 4, 2013 at Temple Adat Elohim 2420 E. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Note different day of week and later start time
The Topic: One-Step Webpages:
A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools
and a Case Study Using One-Step Webpages
The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Afterward it was expanded to help with searching in the 1930 US census and now the 1940 US census. Over the years, it has continued to evolve and today includes about 200 web-based tools divided into 16 separate categories ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on e-bay. This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one. Steve will also present a Case Study: Genealogy of Renee Kaufman using the One-Step Webpages as well as other websites to develop a family history. It illustrates how, with a minimal amount of initial information, an entire genealogy can be obtained. The presentation also shows how to obtain records in spite of name misspellings, and how to avoid accepting wrong information.
Speaker: Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website for which he has received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society and first-ever Excellence Award from the Association of Professional Genealogists. Steve’s one-step program has revolutionized how to do genealogical searches in large databases! He is best known as the architect of the Intel 8086 (the granddaddy of today’s Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution 30 years ago.
The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County is dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research tools with anyone interested in Jewish genealogy and family history.
