Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois members to share discoveries and research tips on June 28, 2020:

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois will hold a “Kvell and Tell” session on Sunday, June 28, 2020, as part of the group’s annual meeting. Selected members will take turns sharing family history discoveries and research tips starting at 2 p.m. at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook, Ill. Sign-in, networking, and the JGSI help desk and research library will open at 12:30 p.m.

Please note: Those who wish to participate in the “Kvell and Tell” session as presenters are asked to send an email to events@jgsi.org explaining their presentation topic idea and estimated time of presentation. Each presentation is to be between 5 and 10 minutes to allow more members to share their discoveries, experiences and suggestions.

Kvell and Tell presentation topics should relate to Jewish genealogy, family history research methods, anecdotes or discoveries. PowerPoint presentations are suggested but not required. Copies of informative handouts for those in attendance are also encouraged.

The most relevant presentation proposals will be accepted as time allows, and preference will be given to shorter talks. Presentations will be recorded and later made available in the Members Only section of the JGSI website.

This meeting will also feature an annual report from JGSI’s president, Debbie Kroopkin.

At most monthly meetings, JGSI meeting facilities at Temple Beth-El will open at 12:30 p.m. for those who want to peruse or borrow genealogy research library books, get help with genealogy websites or ask genealogical questions of volunteer mavens, or network with other Jewish family historians before the main program begins at 2 p.m. For more information, call 312-666-0100 or see https://jgsi.org/event-3605836. This event is free and open to the public.
