JGSI members to share discoveries and research tips on June 27, 2021:
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, also features a brief annual report from JGSI’s president. (A separate JGSI members-only genealogy question-and-answer discussion time will start at 1 p.m.)
Registration/RSVP details will be forthcoming. 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.
Those who wish to share their family history discoveries and genealogy tips in the “Kvell and Tell” session as presenters should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.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 or 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.
