Topic: American Jewish Family Clubs and Circles As a Genealogy Resource

Speaker: Robinn Magid

Anthropologists say that kinship clubs are unique to American Jewish families of Ashkenazi background. This presentation will explore Jewish family clubs and family circles as a cultural phenomenon and will show through example how exploring cousin clubs can be useful for genealogy research. Most examples used in this presentation are from clubs in the Midwest, including the Katz family of Cleveland, who held a family reunion in 1905 with photos and a memorial book to kick off their club.

Robinn Magid is a long-time JRI-Poland board member. She served as lead co-chair of the IAJGS Warsaw conference and is chairing the 2020 San Diego conference. As JRI-Poland's Lublin Archives Coordinator, Robinn manages projects for 90 towns in the Lublin region and has helped hundreds (perhaps a thousand?) people find answers to their nagging genealogical questions. She has lectured and taught hands-on workshops along the West Coast and is active in SFBAJGS. Robinn is a retired management consultant who specialized in Information Systems. She lives in Northern California with her husband and four children, whom she conspires to turn into genealogists.
