Sorry for the late reminder, but we have a UJGS meeting coming up this Tuesday, May 16th, at 6:30pm, in the B2 classroom at the Family History Library.
Since last month’s viewing of the keynote from the IAJGS conference in Seattle was a hit, we will be watching another session from the conference. The session has not yet been chosen yet, so you’ll have to show up to find out which one. Maybe we’ll let our attendees choose.
See you soon.
Our next meeting will be next Tuesday at 6:30pm in the B2 level classroom of the Family History Library.
We will be viewing the keynote lecture from the IAJGS conference in Seattle last summer. If you’d like to get a taste of what happens at the conference every year, this is your chance.
As always, feel free to bring some genealogy work to do, along with any questions in your research you’d like help with.
See you next week.
Our next meeting will be next Tuesday, March 21st, at 6:30pm, in the classroom on the B2 floor at the Family History Library.
Todd Knowles will present to us about Beginning Jewish research.
There is always time after our meetings for your personal research, so bring something to work on or bring your questions and we’ll try to help.
See you soon.
Next Tuesday, November 15th, at 6:30pm, in the classroom of the B2 floor of the Family History Library, come join us for our final meeting of 2016.
Kahlile Mehr will be presenting Jewish Records in the Zabuzianskie Collection of the Polish State Historical Archive. This is an archive located in Warsaw which holds records for locations that were formerly in Galicia.
Join us to learn more about this archive and, as always, to do some of your own research at the FHL.
By request of some of our members (and some scheduling issues), we are trying something different for this month’s meeting. Instead of third Tuesday, we will be meeting on Saturday, October 22nd, from 1-4pm. And instead of a scheduled speaker, we will take up a position near the entrance of the second floor of the Family History Library to help our members and guests with their genealogy research.
Parking is free all day Saturday in the lot behind the museum. Bring some research to work on and we’ll see how we can help. Beginners are also welcome. We’re happy to show people how to use the vast array of materials available to us at the FHL.
With our apologies to any religious Jewish members, but we’re not aware that we have any at this time.
See you next weekend!
Next Tuesday is our next UJGS meeting. Because of construction on the first floor of the Family History Library, we will be meeting in the classroom on the B-2 level, the British floor. Our meeting will begin at 6:30pm.
Our speaker will be Kathy Kirkpatrick, a Utah-based genealogist, originally from Southern California, who specializes in Italian research. She will be presenting Proving the Jewish Heritage of a Catholic Sicilian Family: following a DNA test showing the 12 marker Cohen modal haplotype, she researched a family back to 1820, then to 1638, and then found baptisms in 1492, the year of the Expulsion of Jews from Sicily. Was the family originally Jewish? Come hear the presentation to find out what she learned.
This lecture was previously presented at the IAJGS Conference in Seattle last month. We are honored to have Kathy bringing this presentation to our society.
See you there.
Since two of our officers have just returned from the IAJGS Conference in Seattle, and one has already gone out of town again, we are going to skip the UJGS meeting this month.
Of course, all of our members are still welcome at the Family History Library to do research if you’d already planned to be there, since today is the third Tuesday and our usual meeting day.
We will have our next UJGS meeting on September 20th.
Next week is the third Tuesday, so it’s time for UJGS members to meet at the Family History Library. We will be in the main floor classroom. Our meeting will begin at 6:30 this month.
Our own Barry Mann is going to talk to us about Lithuanian records and a little about South African records.
There’s also bound to be some discussion about the upcoming IAJGS Conference, which is in Seattle next month, August 7-12. How many of our members will be representing Utah?
See you on Tuesday.
We know the notice is a little late, but it’s the third Tuesday this week, which means a UJGS meeting.
We don’t have a speaker planned so we’re going to have a Library Research Night. We want to invite our members to come to the Family History Library beginning at 6pm (or sooner if you want), meet us in the main floor classroom, and do some genealogy research.
Rather than just discussing your research conundrums and brick walls, we want to more directly to help you find the records you need to move forward, or backward, in your genealogy research.
We want to stress the importance of taking advantage of the resources we have in Salt Lake City. Genealogists travel here from around the world to do their family history research at the FHL, but we live here and we have access to it all the time. We want our members to learn how to use the resources available to us.
See you tomorrow. Bring some genealogy research to work on.
