A popular way to memorialize and share genealogical research is through publishing. However, the road to publication can be confusing and daunting. Please join us as Lew Mexler, Caryn Alter, and Stephen Cohen, discuss their experiences regarding publishing genealogical research and stories. Lew Mexler will focus on his father-in-law’s memoir and his collaboration with academic colleagues while Caryn and Stephen will discuss their genealogy workbook titled What’s in a Name? A Young Person’s Jewish Genealogy Workbook, which serves as a wonderful guide for budding genealogists in terms of writing and publishing your work.
Lew Meixler is currently the Chair of the Jewish Genealogy Club of Mercer County and has given two previous talks on Genealogy at the State Library.
Caryn Alter and Stephen Cohen, both longtime genealogy enthusiasts, are founding members of the Mercer County Jewish Genealogy Society at Beth El Synagogue. Professionally, Caryn is a registered dietitian and has done freelance writing; Steve has a PhD in chemistry, and is a writer, calligrapher, and occasional choral-music arranger. He is the co-author of America’s Scientific Treasures (2nd ed.), due out this Fall from Oxford University Press.
