JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen JGS of North Jersey Meeting #general


The next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society (JGS) of North Jersey will
be held on Thursday, October 22nd at 8:00 pm. at the YM=96YWHA of North Jersey,
1 Pike Road in Wayne, 973-595-0100.

Do you have a scandal in your family tree? While researching her mother's
genealogy, Sylvia Firschein found her mother's immigration was part of a
national scandal. Come hear this fascinating story. Her research techniques
might help you with your own research. And you never know, you just might be
included in this national scandal also!

Sylvia Firschein founded the JGS of North Jersey while working as librarian for
the YM-YWHA and is also a retired public school librarian. She now has time to
pursue her genealogical roots and has given lectures on genealogy in New Jersey
and Florida.

The Charles & Bessie Goldman Library will open at 7:00 pm. Come use our resource
center and socialize, then join us at 8:00 pm. for our meeting.
There is no charge for the program, and all are welcome.
