JGS Conejo Valley and Ventura County August 5 Meeting: Genealogy in the Round

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County (JGSCV) will be meeting on Sunday, August 5, 2012  1:30-3:30 pm at Temple Adat Elohim, 2420 E Hillcrest Drive in Thousand Oaks, CA.

The Topic: Genealogy in the Round:Share Your Successes, Failures, Artifacts and Brick Walls

Come and share a genealogical success, failure, brick wall, or genealogical artifact! This is YOUR meeting-We all learn from one another-take this opportunity to share your genealogical story-success or failure, ask questions about your brick walls, and more!

If you wish to participate in the program, please contact Jan Meisels Allen at president@JGSCV.org.  Each participant will be given 5-10 minutes to share-depending on the number of presenters.  We have room for several more presenters---Whether you are a JGSCV member or a potential member-we'd love
to hear your genealogical story.

Our Schmoozing corner, which starts 15 minutes before the meeting begins will be facilitated by Werner Frank, JGSCV founding member and former board member. This permits attendees to ask questions on brick walls and get directions on how to do their research.

The 10-minute genealogical technique will be presented by JGSCV board member and publicity chairperson, Marion Werle on Citing Your Sources--this is critical when doing your genealogical research--listing where you obtained the information and how to do it!

Our traveling library will have categories A and C books.(the D category was erroneously listed in the newsletter--D category books will be available at the September meeting).  The books are available starting 30 minutes before the program to shortly after the program. To see which books are coming to the meeting, please see our website www.jgscv.org under traveling library.
