Genealogist Scott E. Meyer will present "Resurrecting Grandpa's Store"
at the Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018, meeting of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Illinois at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook,
His presentation starts at 2 p.m. Sign-in, networking, and the JGSI
genealogy help desk and research library will open at 12:30 p.m.
In his presentation, Meyer will recount how the discovery of a small,
faded Polaroid photograph of three people led to a detailed
reconstructed view of his grandfather's grocery store. He will share
what he learned about researching small Chicago businesses, and how he
re-created an image that once existed only in his memory.
Scott E. Meyer is a former president and current recording secretary
of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois, and a former director
of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies.
