Jewish Genealogy in Howard County

Monday, June 18, 2018,

1:00 PM


Speaker: Niv Fishbein

Program: "What Genealogists Can Learn from Matzevot (Tombstones)"

Genealogists have been known to haunt cemeteries. This is because so much information is available on the matzevot (tombstones). Niv Fishbein will talk about the design, Hebrew inscriptions and symbols on the grave markers.


For over 7 years, Niv has managed Fram Monument’s Greater Washington showroom. Niv is an expert in multi-cultural memorials, utilizing many languages and religious traditions to honor your loved ones. Niv was actively involved in our revolutionary online bronze memorial designer and previewer. Niv takes pride in every step of the memorial process from the initial consultation with the family to the proof rendering, fabrication and ultimately the installation at the grave site. Niv views every memorial as if it were for a member of his own family so you know the memorial will be made exactly to the family’s wishes.

Location: Vantage House, 5400 Vantage Point Road, Columbia, MD

Everyone is welcome.

An Open letter to members of the Jewish Genealogy community:

As many of you know, on July 1, Jewish Genealogy in Howard County will no longer be affiliated with the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington. The reasons have been aired publicly and frankly, it was neither a surprise, nor a disappointment.

Be advised that the termination of our relationship with JGSGW will not be the end of Jewish Genealogy in Howard County. Stay tuned for our first meeting as a newly invigorated body. Going forward, our meetings will be on the third Monday of the month at 1:00 PM. Shortly you will receive information about our first meeting on July 16.

If you want to continue receiving announcements of our meetings, please reply to this email with YES in the subject line.

If we do not receive a reply from you after June 18, we will no longer send you our meeting announcements.

If you would like to be on our advisory committee or have an interest in program planning, membership development, or publicity & communication, and/or developing a website, please send an email to me at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We are looking forward to a many years of Jewish genealogy research and education in our area.

Location Vantage House
