Steve - You obviously visited the Genealogical Societies as a guest.
So you really didn't have the opportunity to share your research.

Presidents normally follow an agenda - within a time frame.

Our JGSPBCI is now in it's 15th celebratory year.
We began as a small group, and have grown to about 315 [paid-up] membership.
Hard work by dedicated Board members, planning of meeting agendas, and
genealogically related programming to hold members interest, have brought us
this far.

We're all "people friendly", and it shows!

Guests are introduced at each meeting, and are asked to give their name and
shtetlach of interest in their research. Since we usually have many guests,
it would not be feasible to have each guest go into detail. They are invited
to join our JGS, where they are encouraged to come a bit early to network,
participate in SIGs, bring their research problems to our "Brick Wall"
sessions before our meetings, and learn about genealogical resources - how
and where to access documentation, etc. etc.

Of course, there is much more to running a successful JGS, and if you would
like to have additional information on our activities, please check our

Good luck,
Sylvia
