The workshop will begin with an overview of the extensive genealogical resources - in print, on microfilm, and online - most of which are only available at Tampa's main downtown library. The overview will be followed by the actual use of these resources for your own individual research under the guiding hands of our experienced mentors. The John F. Germany library has a large microfilm collection of immigration records as well as computer access to Ancestry Plus, Heritage Quest and other databases among its considerable genealogical resources. A listing of the library's premium databases can be seen online at
The overview session of the library's holdings will begin at 1:30 PM, and will be followed by individual research using the library's microfilm readers and computer facilities with guided assistance if needed until the library closes at 5:00 PM. Anyone interested in learning how to do Jewish genealogy research is invited to participate. Beginners as well as experienced researchers are welcome.
