Upcoming Events
September 17th:
First Meeting of the Season!
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Location:  Soref JCC
We wil be presenting the highlights of the IAJGS Meeting (International Society of Jewish Genealogy Societies)
Two of our members attended this year:  Joyce Ben Ezra attended in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Brenda Feuer telecommuted from her home in Tamarac.  They will each give their perspectives on the speakers and events of the conference, and if anyone else attended electronically, you are invited to present your experience as well!
In addition, Joyce will kick off our BRICK WALLS AND BREAKTHROUGHS segment by presenting an interesting research project she completed recently, and will describe her research techniques and resources, as well as her findings.  We're interested in your research as well, so plan to participate and tell us what you've discovered over the summer, or what is stumping you!
