Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all UJGS members, and other interested readers of our blog!

It’s a new year, so that means your UJGS dues is due. Our dues is still only $10 per person or $15 per couple.

You can pay online using Paypal by going to the Member Login area. If you have never logged in before or don’t remember your password, simply use the Reset Password option.

Optionally, you can send in a check. Please note that we have a new treasurer this year. Her address can be found on our Membership Application.

We’ve scheduled meetings for the first quarter of 2016. Meetings will continue to be Tuesday nights at 6pm. Our first two¬† meetings of the year will be February 2nd and March 15th.

Our first meeting is moved up to the first Tuesday of February to coincide with RootsTech. Our speaker, Israel Pickholtz, is coming all the way from Jerusalem to speak to us about his research in genetic genealogy, Endogamy: One Family, One People. This meeting will be at the Church History Museum auditorium, which is the building just across from the FHL.

Additionally, IAJGS will have a booth again at RootsTech. We don’t have many details yet, but if anyone wants to volunteer to help out, we’d be happy to have you. Most visitors to our booth want to talk about Jewish genealogy, and we steer them towards their local JGS (often us!) and our annual conference.
