Looking for unusual success stories from JewishGen Discussion Group members #JewishGenUpdates #education

Phil Goldfarb

To: All JewishGen Discussion Group Members

I am in the process of completing a presentation titled "How to Effectively Utilize the JewishGen Discussion Group" and am looking for individual Discussion Group success stories from anyone that can be added to my program. If you had an unusual situation or story that by posting the problem, question or issue on the JewishGen Discussion Group, it helped you break down a brick wall, was a "eureka moment" for you or you found a new relative, because of the help from another member, I would like to hear it and possibly add it to the lecture. The more unusual the better!
As all of you know, the JewishGen Discussion Group unites Jewish genealogical researchers worldwide as they share information, ideas, methods, tips, techniques and resources.

This presentation will be offered to JGS Societies either via Zoom or better yet live when the Covid issue is behind us (I get my 2nd vaccine shot next week so I am on my way!) as a potential program.  It will also be a program for JewishGen Talks and potentially for a future IAJGS Meeting. 

If you have a short success story (please keep it to a few sentences or a paragraph at most) please send it directly to me at: phil.goldfarb@.... DO NOT just hit reply and send the message to everyone! (The moderators will reject it!)

Thank you in advance for any anecdote or tale that you would like to contribute and share. I don't know how many I can use, but will certainly give you credit for your story! Again, please send them directly to me as opposed to the entire Discussion Group.

Regards and stay safe!
