Adrienne Usher, Director of Research for the Shapell Roster, will be speaking to the Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia about her research on Jews who fought in the Civil War.  Historically, Jews were identified in Civil War Rosters by name profiling.  The Shapell Roster research team has identified Jewish soldiers using documents, newspaper articles, and other primary sources. Ms. Usher will discuss the project and share information about the 1,200 soldiers they have identified as Jewish who were not previously known.

The presentation will be held Sunday, March 22 at The Breman Museum, 1440 Spring Street, Atlanta, GA.  Doors open at 1:00, meeting begins at 2:00.  Admission is free for members of The Breman Museum and included in admission for non-members.
