JGS of Illinois members to share discoveries and research tips virtually on June 27, 2021 #jgs-iajgs #announcements
The Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois will hold a virtual “Kvell and Tell” session on Sunday, June 27, 2021, as part of the group’s annual meeting. Several JGSI members will take turns sharing family history discoveries and research tips. This meeting, which starts at 2 p.m. CDT (U.S. and Canada), also features a brief annual report from JGSI’s president, Debbie Kroopkin. (A separate JGSI members-only genealogy question-and-answer discussion time will start at 1 p.m.)
To register for this free event, go to https://jgsi.org/Events-calendar. After you register, you will be sent a link to join the meeting. This webinar will be recorded so that JGSI’s paid members who are unable to view it live will be able to view the recording later.
The varied, entertaining, and informative short “Kvell and Tell” talk topics relate to Jewish genealogy or family history research methods, anecdotes, or discoveries.
