 JGSI Hosts First Annual Share Fair

Share Fair – JGSI Poster Exhibits

This special IN PERSON ONLY event is designed to allow interested members to share their genealogical work with others in an open forum. Exhibitors may choose to highlight any facet of their family history research including fascinating discoveries, arcane records, useful methodology, or soliciting help on a brick wall. The chosen subject is to be displayed on a tri-fold poster. While exhibitors are asked to be available to answer questions about their work, no formal stand up presentation is required.

If you are not interested in creating a poster, but are curious about the genealogy work of our members, we welcome you to join us as an kibitzer.

The JGSI meeting facilities at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook, Illinois, will open on April 14 at 12:30 p.m. Central Time for those who want to use genealogy library materials, including our collection of maps; get help with family history websites or ask genealogical questions, or just chat, before the poster session begins at 2 p.m. For this special program, these services will remain open for the entire afternoon. The Share Fair itself will run from 2 to 3:45 p.m. Feel free to bring your lunch.

Walk-ins are welcome to kibitz; however, registration is strongly encouraged. 

Please note this is an IN PERSON ONLY event with building security in place. The meeting will not be broadcast on Zoom, nor will it be recorded. RSVP by clicking the  REGISTER  button on the left.
