JGS Toronto. Virtual Meeting. Poland SIG. Getting Back to Basics. Hazel Boon. 20 April 2023, 7:30 PM EDT. #jgs-iajgs #events #announcements

Jerry Scherer



Poland Special Interest Group
Getting Back to Basics

Coordinator: Hazel Boon

Thursday 20 Apr 2023, 7:30 p.m. EDT

Virtual doors open at 7:20 p.m. EDT

According to Wikipedia, “a special interest group (SIG) is a community within a larger organization with a shared interest in advancing a specific area of knowledge, learning or technology where members cooperate to affect or to produce solutions within their particular field, and may communicate, meet, and organize conferences.” My hope is that through this group we can guide each other through research issues we all face.

At our meeting on 20 April, I’d like to take a look at the document I’m working on that specifies the surnames and towns In Eastern Europe being researched by our members. There are also some questions/issues that have been submitted to me by members. I will send them out, along with any other questions/issues I receive, to those who register for this meeting. Don’t be shy. We are all here to help each other learn about our ancestors/family and how they lived their lives. Your questions, brick walls or research stories may help other attendees.

In order to ensure that we can all benefit, we are limiting these Poland SIG meetings to JGS Toronto members only.

I’m looking forward to meeting with you on Thursday evening, 20 April at 7:30 p.m. EDT.
