The Bucks County Genealogical Society will welcome Fred Blum on Saturday, Aug. 3, from 10 a.m. to noon, to present “Jewish Genealogy – How to Locate Individuals Through Genealogy” at the David Library of the American Revolution, 1201 River Road, Washington Crossing.

His presentation will teach some techniques he uses to locate individuals through genealogy. This information will enable researchers to not only locate family, but uncover distant relatives, and assist in searching for heirs, as well as missing plaintiffs, defendants and witnesses.

Come early at 9:30 a.m. to enjoy complimentary coffee and snacks while socializing with like-minded genealogists. Attend the beginner’s corner or browse the store. This event is open to the public. Cost is $5 for members, $10 for non-members. For more information, visit bucksgen.org.

The society will also have a booth set up on July 5, Aug. 2 and Sept. 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. during First Fridays on the Delaware in Bristol. This takes place on the 300 block of Mill Street. Representatives will offer free guidance to guests starting their family history research or those hitting brick walls.
