*****If you wish to participate in the program, please email
ssteeble@... by Wednesday, Sept 16, with your name and a short
description of the item you wish to show.*****

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
Island passenger 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.
