Introduction to Jewish Genealogy

This introductory lecture will teach you the basics of getting started with Jewish genealogy. You will learn about the various sources that are available to trace the lives of your ancestors, and how to use them to document your family history.

Genealogy and the Holocaust: Reconnecting Survivors with their Past

Many Holocaust survivors left Europe without any physical trace of their relatives who perished. Many do not even have photographs of their loved ones. In this lecture, Morgenstern will explain how he uses genealogy research to find any existing documents and sometimes photographs for Holocaust survivors and their families.

NEWJewish Immigration: A History through Genealogy

Learn about the history of Jewish immigration, and the resources that you can use to research your family's immigration stories. This lecture will also cover the lives of Jewish immigrants before and after immigration.

About Michael Morgenstern

Michael Morgenstern is a native of Los Angeles, California. He has been an avid genealogy researcher for over ten years. After completing an undergraduate degree in history at Loyola Marymount University in 2013, he worked as a researcher on the fifth season of TLC's history and genealogy show "Who Do You Think You Are?" Since 2014, he has worked at Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. For the past five years, he has volunteered genealogy research to local Holocaust survivors, focusing on those who do not have any pre-war family documents or photographs. He has been successful in helping survivors find photographs of their family members who did not survive.

He presented this research in 2018 at the 38th Annual International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) Conference in Warsaw, Poland. Last fall, he lectured onboard Uniworld's Remarkable Rhine & Historic Holland Jewish Heritage cruise.
