Please join us for a Show-and-Tell program, “It’s Your Turn!”
Throughout the past year, we’ve featured entertaining and informative
presentations by speakers, but now it’s time for our group members to
take a turn. Please join us at the meeting and bring something to share!
All of our members are invited to bring something related to their own family
history or research to share with the group. Perhaps you’ve inherited your
grandmother’s candlesticks or Seder plate. Maybe your grandfather’s tallis was
passed down to you. Or possibly you have a portrait of an ancestor or a snapshot
taken long ago at a family gathering. You may have found documents relating to your
family's past in Europe centuries ago. Even if you don’t possess any keepsakes
from your ancestors, you may be able to show us a printout of their Ellis Islandpassenger manifest or a picture of the shtetl in which they lived. Please bring
your item to show to the group (of course, don’t bring anything that’s extremely
valuable or fragile), and tell us a little bit about the person it belonged to or
how you received or discovered it.
Please bring just one item and limit your talk to just one minute!
The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied to membership
fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first meeting. Refreshments will be
available. Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the
time, location, and program of future meetings.
