summer? Need a fix of genealogy and to chat with like-minded family tree
researchers? Able to come to Gants Hill next Tuesday?

Just a reminder that all are welcome to the Jewish Genealogical Society
of Great Britain East of London Group's next meeting:

We want you to tell us about your family's past, however little or much
you know, and we'll all try to help with any brick walls!

Our special guest will be journalist and trade unionist Francis Beckett,
son of a Mosley Blackshirt, who will also be telling us about the
extraordinary twists and turns of his family history and why he has joined
the JGSGB.
